Eating at the college

Parkhall Integrated College recognises that there is an important connection between a healthy diet and a student’s ability to learn effectively and achieve their full potential.

A very successful Breakfast Club operates throughout the year from 8:15 – 8:55. To encourage all students to start the day with a good healthy breakfast, the school subsidises the club keeping the cost down for our students. For 50p students enjoy cereal and/or toast with tea or breakfast juice. Where we can, we make this free in the winter months.  

Breaktime is split into senior and junior sessions:

  • Senior break for students in key stage 4 and 5: 10:15am – 10:30am
  • Junior break for students in key stage 3: 11:15am – 11:30am

Breaktime normally offers a range of food such as warm ham & cheese baguettes, toast, bagels, scones, potato bread and juices or milkshakes.

Lunch is also split into senior and junior sessions:

  • Senior lunch for students in key stage 4 and 5: 12.30pm – 1.00pm
  • Junior lunch for students in key stage 3: 1.05pm – 1.35pm

At lunch a wider selection of hot food is available, for example chicken curry pasta bake, pizza, bolognese, stew, soup, roast dinner and baked potato. There is a salad bar where students can order a plated salad or alternatively a chicken, tuna, or ham salad wrap. The 'Grab and Go' counter has sandwiches, filled baguettes, paninis, homemade biscuits and drinks. Yogurts and fresh fruit are also available. 

Some students bring a packed lunch. These are eaten at the back of the assembly hall.
