Term and holiday dates for Warwickshire schools

Warwickshire County Council is responsible for setting school term and holiday dates for all Warwickshire Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools. Academies, Foundation and Aided Schools are responsible for setting their own term dates and we work closely with them to align where possible.

As the calendar varies from year to year, Warwickshire school dates are determined for each year based on the ‘best fit’ with a number of parameters:

  • 195 days from which five teacher training days are taken
  • Two of the five teacher training days are defined by the local authority, the other three to be set by schools
  • Complete weeks when setting holiday dates wherever possible
  • A three-weekend break at Christmas and Easter
  • A summer break as close to six weeks as possible
  • A pattern which is as consistent as possible with neighbouring authorities.

School term dates are typically published approximately 18 months in advance of the start of that academic year. For example, the dates for the 2025/26 terms will be published by March 2024
