There is usually a two and a half week holiday at both Christmas and Easter and approximately seven weeks in the summer. Whenever possible the half term holiday is planned to coincide with other schools in the city and is a two week holiday in October, with one week in February and May. The school is closed for public holidays. At the end of term, school breaks up at 12.30pm.
Parents are expected not to remove pupils from school during term time for family holidays, other than in exceptional circumstances when it must be discussed with the school and written approval given by the Headmistress.
When the guest of honour grants an extra day’s holiday at Prize Giving, in respect of the hard work of the staff and pupils the previous academic year, the Headmistress arranges for this to be taken at a time which is most suitable for the school. This date is advised well in advance.
