That is the pattern I switched to.
Roberts tool just lists the grounds element as a non-existant school
object but I think that is OK.

This is the bit I still need to tidy up ...
South Worcestershire College is on two sites and currently being listed
But http://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/5902498 is only part of the
answer for Heart of Worcestershire College since - for example - the
various buildings in Worcester are not easily identified as part of the
college. Should I complicate the relation more, or simply tag each
building as 'Worcester Campus, Heart of Worcester College'. PERSONALLY I
would prefer to have a 'place' node for each campus, add all the
elements in a relation to that, and simply have a relation 'node' of all
the campuses.
Warwickshire College Group needs the same treatment since currently my
'Pershore College' entry is being matched to the main campus on the 'CV'
page of progress :)

I've not had that problem either yet ...

The short answer is 'No' ... these are outside the 'education system'
but are still colleges. Have the same problem with
http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/118736391 which IS a college but
obviously not a school system one.
( Must update the campus there .. I see someone extended the housing
estate to the left which I started some time back, but that area of the
college has been sold for housing )
