When are school holidays in England?

The British academic year runs from September to July.

Schools are open for 195 days each school year.

English schools have 3 terms, separated by holidays.

The school year is 39 weeks long and is divided into three terms:

  • Term 1 - September to October (followed by a one week holiday),October to December (followed by a two week holiday)
  • Term 2 - January to February (followed by a one week holiday), February to March (followed by a two week holiday)
  • Term 3 - April to May (followed by a one week holiday). June to July (followed by a six week summer holiday)

Who decides the dates of the School terms and holidays for these lazy b******ds?
