School terms, holiday dates and closures

About school terms, holiday dates and closures

We give schools in the borough a recommended school holiday pattern for the academic year. 

Check exact dates with your school

Every year schools are required to choose 3 days during term time to set aside for staff training which students don't attend.

We also allow schools to change up to 2 days of our recommended holiday pattern, for example for polling days or religious festivals. You'll need to refer to your specific school's website for the exact term dates.
