IMPORTANT NOTE: The dates above are the official school holidays. Parents should be aware that taking holidays at times other than these can be extremely disruptive to pupils' education. This is particularly important for pupils preparing for public examinations. The school will not normally agree to your child missing school for family holidays except in exceptional circumstances.
