Incidentally will New School become the New Old School then?
Well, people no longer talk about "New Labour".
And when decimal coinage came in, us school kids were told that refering to "pennies" or "pence" was very wrong. They were "new pence" or "new P" for short. And somewhere in the intervening years, the new got dropped both from the teaching and from the inscriptions on the coins.
But there is still "Newcastle", "Newtown", "Newport", "New College Oxford" etc.. So perhaps the rule to naming something that is newer than an old thing that is still labeled "new", is to simply call it a name that doesn't refer to relative age.
