Confirmation of Term Dates 2024-2025

Three months ago the school opened a consultation to make a change to the published term dates for the 2024-2025 academic year. The original consultation information can be see here. Following the end of the consultation the responses were analysed and then discussed by the Governing Body.

There were 66 responses in total. The large majority of responses were in favour of the change (89%), with a minority being against the change (8%). The remaining 3% of responses did not give an opinion. Having considered the responses the Governing Body have decided to approve the change, and the term dates will therefore be as follows for next year. All other dates remain unchanged to those already published.

End of the Autumn Term: Students will be expected in school up to and including Friday 20th December 2024. This is one day later than the original published term dates. As is tradition, school will close early on the final day of term with students leaving at 12.30pm.

Start of the Spring Term: Students will be expected back in school on Monday 6th January 2025. This is two days later than the original published term dates, as a staff INSET day will take place on Friday 3rd January.

I appreciate that changing term dates after they are published online is never ideal, and I am sorry for any inconvenience caused. However, I am confident that in the main this change is both sensible and in the best interests of the school community. We will continue to communicate this change in the run up to the Christmas period 2024 so as to make sure no-one is caught out.

Best wishes,

Joe Barker
