Academic Year 2019-20 & 2020-21

Many thanks to everyone who gave us feedback on the proposed term dates for 2019/20 and 2020/21.  In total we had over 100 responses from staff and parents with overwhelming support for the proposed dates, which are in line with Leicestershire County Council (LCC) and include an early autumn half-term break and an early start to the summer holidays.

Following the feedback, the proposed term dates for 2019/20 and 2020/21 were confirmed in July 2018. 

For reference, the term dates for the next 3 years are available for download below, including the previously published dates for 2018/19 where the October half-term is one week later than the LCC dates.
