School Term Dates

Term dates for current and next academic year

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.
