Please note that some schools have decided to adopt slightly different half term and holiday dates to those shown here and it is therefore advisable to contact the individual school to confirm their dates before making holiday arrangements.
For Voluntary Aided and Foundation schools in the South East it is the school Governing Body which sets the school's term and holiday dates. Whilst every effort is made to ensure that these half term school holiday dates are accurate, there are occasions when circumstances beyond our control may result in changes to published term times.
