Highly unlikely[edit]

"In June 1997, the school was closed mainly owing to diminishing pupil numbers and financial difficulties, having been seriously affected by the termination of government assisted places by the Labour government" -

'seriously affected' to that extent within a couple of weeks of the Labour government coming in? Hardly.

Are these really notable?[edit]

From the end of the article:

At the time the school closed, the headmaster was Philip Skelker, head boy Toby Tenenbaum and head girl Lyna Tahan.

I suppose the head might be notable, if he's done anything other than being head, but I can't for the life of me see why the head boy and girl are. I intend to remove this line unless someone objects. Loganberry (Talk) 00:49, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

What harm is there in including this information? Another point is the omission of Mongewell House. It should be added. Philip Skelker was also a teacher at Eton and is now headmaster of Immanuel College in Bushey. What about a section on famous old Carmellis - including Philip Green? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Scampben (talkcontribs) 14:47, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

Dambusters[edit]

I've removed this from the article.

It was also the site for the briefing for the "bouncing bombs" raids of Operation Chastise.[1] - which left from nearby RAF Benson.

The raid itself was from RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire. There is a mention of RAF Benson in the Operation Chastise article in connection with photo-reconnaissance to assess the damage to the dams. If someone has access to the reference given there, Falconer, Jonathan and Chris Staerck. Allied Photo Reconnaissance of World War II. London: PRC Publishing Ltd., 1998. ISBN 1-57145-161-7 , they could check if there is a mention of the college.Cavrdg (talk) 12:40, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

"Left at 07:30 to be there by first light"? What, using a time machine so he could fly backwards in time?
