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
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 )
