I agree that in the case of more complex campuses each separate FHRS ID 
should be attached to the relevant building if possible, and I think 
that the associated postcode should also be attached to that building 
rather than to the school boundary in these cases. This is what I have 
done in the case of Rugby School (with the added bonus of local 
knowledge) and it seems to work well e.g. Stanley House within Rugby 
School: http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/259571188.

The comparison tool (http://gregrs.dev.openstreetmap.org/fhrs/) can also 
be used to visualise the location of each FHRS inspection point 
(although these aren't always geographically accurate as within the FHRS 
data they are based on the location of the postcode centroid), whether 
this inspection point has been linked to an OSM node/way using the 
fhrs:id tag and whether the postcodes match. My hope is that this should 
remove the need to download the data manually.
