Dorset School Holidays 2021 and 2022

This page contains the 2021 and 2022 school holidays as published by the Dorset Council in England to help you start planning.

Generally, the holiday dates announced at a council level don’t change very often. However, we encourage you to check back regularly for any amendments that may occur, and to consult the Dorset Council website for their 2021-2022 approved calendar and 2022-2023 approved calendar. You may also wish to visit the Dorset Council homepage to check for any urgent or last-minute updates that may not have been incorporated into the official calendars.

Also note that dates for individual schools may vary due to teacher training days and other school-specific considerations.
