Senior School allows students the opportunity to become a Form Class Mentor and/or a Prefect in Year 13 and in Year 14, or the honours positions of Head Boy & Girl and Deputy Head Boys & Girls.
These honours are competitively sought and give students positions of real responsibility in the school. As such, they equip students with key skills and experiences in leadership, in preparation for their Post 18 future.
The Prefect system is very much valued in the life of Parkhall Integrated College and our Prefects play an integral role in the day-to-day running of the school. Consequently, Senior School students and staff enjoy excellent working relationships.
Training for the role is built into Induction for Year 13 and 14 and includes role-plays, team building and training with Young Enterprise to develop their leadership skills. The Senior School Formal is a special occasion and there is always a stylish turnout from students and staff from both schools. Our Senior Prefects play a key role in organising this event.
Our Senior School Team, led by the Deputies and Heads, have specific responsibilities for organising functions, duties, the Study Room and the ever-popular formal. This provides our prefects with invaluable leadership and events management skills and experience.
