School term dates

School term dates for 2021 - 2022

Not all schools follow the term dates below. Governors of academies, foundation and voluntary aided schools set their own dates. For term dates for an individual school, we recommend you contact the school directly.

Schools must meet for at least 380 sessions or 190 days during any school year to educate their pupils. If a school is prevented from meeting for one or more sessions because of an unavoidable event, it should find a practical way of holding extra sessions.
