When are the Holidays?

This year Good Friday falls on April 14 and Easter Monday is on April 17 – while the school break is usually two weeks long.

The celebration for most adults will be a four-day weekend as Good Friday and Easter Monday are also bank holidays.

For those with kids, the school holidays this year are likely to be Friday, March 31 to Monday, April 17, although these may vary from school to school.

To be 100% sure of your child’s school term times use the Government’s postcode checker.

Normally, the county council sets the holiday dates – although schools sometimes change the weeks.

Academies and private schools are given more autonomy, and often have different holiday dates and length to state comprehensives.
