New year, new home for Parkhall Integrated College

The Parkhall Integrated College community has been moving into brand new premises this week with the school at last united on a single site in modern facilities.

Parkhall IC has waited years for a new building to accommodate both the junior and senior pupils, having operated on a split site in Antrim for a decade.  The old junior school site will be used to develop improved sports facilities which will be available for community use.

New year, new home for Parkhall Integrated CollegeThis academic year saw the first post-16 classes at Parkhall IC, which will work closely with neighbouring Antrim Grammar School to offer a wide range of subjects.

The school has been delighted by the support offered by the local community with volunteers, many co-ordinated by local churches, turning out to help pack up and move furniture, equipment and books from the old buildings.   There has been a phased start to the new term with year groups being inducted individually into the new accommodation.
