Following our set precedent, we will take four INSET days out of the calendar and turn them into ten staff Twilight training sessions. We will use these gained days gained to provide staff and students with an extended (full three week) break at Christmas. It is expected that this will, once again, prevent a high number of illnesses, which so often hit schools in January, from happening. Our term dates will therefore be:
HALF TERM 1: Wednesday 5th September 2018 – Friday 19th October 2018
Monday 3rd September 2018 – STAFF INSET DAY
Tuesday 4th September 2018 – STAFF INSET DAY
Year 7 and year 11 students start/return to school on Wednesday 5th September for a day of induction/study planning at 10.50am. All students in years 8, 9 and 10 return to school on Thursday 6th September at 8.25am.
Students finish for the half term holiday on Friday 19th October at 2.50pm. All students return Monday 29th October.
HALF TERM 2: Monday 29th October 2018 – Friday 14th December 2018
Students finish for the holiday on Friday 14th December at 12.10pm. All students return Monday 7th January.
HALF TERM 3: Monday 7th January 2019 – Friday 15th February 2019
