School term and holiday dates

School term and holiday dates are usually set over 14 months before the academic year starts. They are based on a school year of 195 days.

In the past, schools have decided to operate slightly different term dates. Schools can choose to use 5 of these days for staff training. Please contact your child's school to find out which dates they are operating.
