School term dates

The academic year or school year runs from 1st September to 31st August.

These term dates apply to community and voluntary-controlled schools only; academy schools, voluntary-aided and foundation schools are responsible for setting their own dates.  You should contact academies, voluntary-aided and foundation schools direct to confirm their term dates.

In addition to the dates shown below, schools will also close on INSET days and occasional days. Whenever possible the school has these days either at the beginning or at the end of a term or half term so as to cause minimum disruption to pupils and families.

Please contact your school to find out when their INSET or Occasional days are, or alternatively please follow the link to Find school term dates and INSET days.
