Term Dates

Academic Year 2021 – 2022

Autumn Term 2021
Thursday 2nd September* to Friday 17th December 2021

*Please note that the September return to school is a staggered start. Please read the attached guide here which outlines the full details. This staggering is to accommodate the government’s plan for all students to have two lateral flow tests at the start of the term. Our guide also talks through how school will look and feel and there is a short video link for new students who may need some reassurance about having their very first lateral flow test. There is nothing to worry about, we are old hands at supporting young people through this now.
