Good start. However articles should be < 30% lists and include notability. refs are good. Some pictures Victuallers 16:19, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

You need about 8 or 10 3rd party refs.... Victuallers 16:26, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Language College.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Language College.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Proposed Merge[edit]

As the other proposed article (Willink School) is just a copy/paste job, I suggest that it redirects here. The school's official name is The Willink School ([1]) so I propose that this is the master record, with all redirects pointing here. If there's no objections, I'll do that soonish.

I've done it - the last revision of the other page is available here. Booglamay (talk) 15:00, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Removal of lists of subjects, May 2012[edit]

I've rewritten the article to reduce some sub-division and essentially remove a huge amount of tabular or list information about what's taught at the school. Given that none of it was in any way notable - i.e. different to what's taught at most other secondary schools in the UK - it's basically not needed. We're better off with less information more obviously focussed on the subject.

The article does need some more references however. It seems to be one of the few secondary schools without such a range of local press articles about it! Blue Square Thing (talk) 12:28, 5 May 2012 (UTC)
