Edinburgh School Holidays 2022 and 2023

This page contains the 2022 and 2023 school holidays as published by the City of Edinburgh Council in Scotland 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 City of Edinburgh Council website for their 2021-2022 approved calendar and 2022-2023 approved calendar. You may also wish to visit the City of Edinburgh 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.
