Planning Ahead

To help you plan ahead, we try and give parents as much notice as we possibly can of key dates in the school academic year, including holidays. However, please note that some of these dates may be subject to change, and when this occurs we will endeavor to provide you with notice via the school website and/or email where we can. Not all school events are included here.

Below are the dates for the school holidays. Please plan your family holidays around these dates, as any time missed from school is extremely detrimental to your son or daughter’s progress. The governors of the school will not authorise holidays taken outside of these dates and we do, therefore, ask parents to support us in ensuring maximum attendance. Please contact the school if you feel there are special circumstances to your request for holidays outside of these dates.
