Find out our planned school term dates, and look up any unplanned school closures.

School term and holiday dates

These are the dates for most state schools in Bristol, but academies and voluntary aided schools dates may be different so please check with them.

Other councils set their own dates, which could be different from ours.

The school year is 195 days altogether. Five of these days are used for staff training (inset days), so that means pupils go to school for 190 days a year. 

Each school chooses when their inset days take place. 

Unplanned closures

See the Bristol School Closures page for the latest updates on any schools that have had to close.
