Term Dates

Hollygirt School operates a three term year, and whilst the dates vary because of the position of Easter and the day on which Christmas falls, the number of taught days are the same each year. Inset time for the staff is scheduled outside of these dates. The end of full terms is always a half day, with pupils finishing school at 12.30pm. Any other occasional days are publicised on the annual school calendar.

Parents are respectfully reminded not to book holidays within term time. Time out of school can lead to gaps in subject knowledge and interrupt continuity of education. However, occasionally pupils are given leave of absence in exceptional circumstances, if permission is sought from the Headmistress.
