Term dates

For current stated funded school term dates please go to Cambridgeshire Schools Term Dates.

Independent schools do not have standardised term dates, therefore you will need to contact individual schools to find out the term dates for the year.

Family holidays during state funded school term-time and extended visits overseas

School-age children, who are registered at a school must, by law, attend that school regularly. In particular, parents need to avoid taking their children out of school during term-time in order to go on holiday. All schools have a policy which discourages parents from arranging family holidays during term time and will state that such leave will not be granted unless there are 'exceptional circumstances'.

Extended visits to family overseas (more than 10 days) maybe unavoidable, and if so, parents will need to discuss the educational impact on their child(ren) with the school.
