Non-notable school; article contains little information. -- Graham ☺ | Talk 22:39, 8 Oct 2004 (UTC)

  • Delete. Not notable. Gwalla | Talk 01:54, 9 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Question: is this a post-secondary school (i.e. ages 18+), or is it the equivalent of a U.S. high school (sorry for my ignorance of the UK school system)? If it is a high-school equivalent, then delete; but colleges (in the U.S. sense) are notable. [[User:Meelar|Meelar (talk)]] 04:10, Oct 9, 2004 (UTC)
    • It appears to be a high-school equivalent. At least they mention GCSEs which I believe is an exam for 15/16 year-olds. Delete. Rory 16:45, Oct 9, 2004 (UTC)
    • Yep, roughly a high-school equivalent. I live in England and I've never heard of it. Delete - makomk 11:44, 13 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete unless expanded with evidence of notability. Average Earthman 12:25, 9 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete: I used to work at a high school that was called a college. Usually, these schools are much older than the traditional public high school, so it's possible (likely, even) that this school is notable. However, the author did not present those claims and may not be aware of them. I'm not against high schools. I'm for notable ones. This could be, but we can't tell and weren't told.

  • Delete unless evident of notability presented. [[User:Dpbsmith|Dpbsmith (talk)]] 20:17, 9 Oct 2004 (UTC) By the way, is "trialling" a word? [[User:Dpbsmith|Dpbsmith (talk)]] 20:18, 9 Oct 2004 (UTC)
    • I can't find a dictionary that says it is. "Trying" would be the closest word, but "testing" would be the more appropriate in this context. If it survives deletion I'll copy-edit it. :) Rory 20:25, Oct 9, 2004 (UTC)
      • "Trialling" may be a BE neologism -- it seems acceptable to my brain, anyway! -- Arwel 10:51, 10 Oct 2004 (UTC)
        • Depends how you define a neologism. The first use recorded in the Oxford English Dictionary is 1981. Incidentally, quite a few British secondary schools (and this undoubtedly is one) are called colleges. It doesn't necessarily have anything to do with age. Too little information, so unless it's improved, Delete. -- Necrothesp 09:42, 11 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Mark Richards 17:30, 11 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Nothing to keep. Mandel 04:43, Oct 12, 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete unless anything extraordinary appears about it. --Jll 13:11, 13 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Article does not establish notability. Gamaliel 18:36, 13 Oct 2004 (UTC)
