After a quarter of a century, the wall is finally coming down. Islington Green, the school that has become entwined in the public imagination with Pink Floyd's 1979 non-conformist anthem "Another Brick in the Wall", is to close. It will reopen as one of the Government's vaunted academies - but, alas, the famous bricks are to be removed.
