    Question The name for this room...

    Hi,
    What's the name for the room where the headteacher or other teachers sit during the breaks?

    In AmE, it's called the "teacher's lounge."

    Thanks a lot. And, if there's a separate room for the head, can we just say "head's", "headteacher's", or "principal's"?

    The Head/Principal, etc, would normally be found in their office, which is separate, at least from my experience in the UK.
