ready to roll as needed, to ensure uniformity with other colleges. Please move these links to the article page as they become useful. Ta, JackyR 21:10, 16 May 2006 (UTC)


I changed the name of Junior and Senior Combination room, as they are actually labelled Undergrad Common room and Graduate common room, as we only recently began the process of splitting the MCR from the HUS. It is unclear whether this will change, but I will keep it up to date.

History section[edit]

I'm trying to reconcile what is written here with list of dissenting academies. The total number of academies on that page is 50-60; I don't know where the number 35 comes from (it isn't badly out for the more substantial 18th century colleges, but it is too precise to stand with no reference at all). The list makes the Homerton foundation in Hackney a continuation of one of the Newington Green academies. That is compatible with what is written here, but again the referencing is somewhat vague, and the discussion is of the building rather than staff or pupils. Who the "literary anvil" was is not revealed: names needed there. Quite a bit of work is required to make that all respectable. Charles Matthews (talk) 11:03, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

I've created Independent College, Homerton with text from the early history, since what was here seemed disproportionate. Charles Matthews (talk) 11:20, 13 September 2011 (UTC)


Text seems slanted and no inline citations or sources so tagged for neutrality. (talk) 00:58, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

The introductory part where it says until 2001 the college only admitted education studies students is not only incorrect but it conflicts with the subsequent history where there is mention of health studies and nursing undergraduate and postgrad students. This latter information appears to be correct and therefore the top section needs to be changed to reflect that. However, there is no facility to edit the top part. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:17, 21 June 2013 (UTC)
