Term Dates 




2021-22 academic year to now finish on Wednesday 20th July. 


The Spring Bank Holiday in 2022 will be moved to Thursday 2 June and an additional Bank Holiday on Friday 3 June will see a four-day weekend to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The extra bank holiday falls in what is already a holiday for teachers and pupils, they get no benefit from the extra day off that everyone else does.  Therefore, Reading Borough Council have reduced the summer term by 1 day in line with other local Authorities, so School can benefit from this extra days holiday.
