United Kingdom School Holidays 2024 and 2025

The dates of school holidays in the UK are determined by the respective education departments of each country. In England and Wales, local education authorities (LEAs) are responsible set their own term and holiday dates each year.

While each jurisdiction follows the same four-term-per-year model, the start and end date of each term can vary by more than a week from country to country.

A very popular school holiday period for travel is the summer school holiday break that generally runs for 5-6 weeks – the longest break in the school calendar.
