There are normally three school terms in Britain: autumn, spring and summer terms.
The school usually have a five-day holiday halfway through each term. Sometimes schools take their pupils on trips at half-term. Holidays can vary from region to region. The schools usually have ten days at Christmas, ten days at Easter and six weeks in summer from the end of July to the beginning of September.
Students can eat lunch in the school canteen. In recent years more and more students have decided to bring their own lunch (packed lunch) rather than eat in the canteen. All pupils enjoy discussing how awful school food is.
