Sir Paul is in the process of trying to buy the Liverpool Art College to prevent it from being demolished. Sir Paul already owns the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts next door. The original buildings that housed the Liverpool Art College are now owned by John Moores University. LIPA's cofounder Mark Featherstone-Witty told reporters:
"John Moores would like us to have it. It would be poetic if LIPA, which is on the site of Paul's old school, and the building that was John's old art college were joined together. We are looking to expand, so it has come at a good time for us. I would like to see the buildings preserved for artistic purposes."
