Term Dates

School holidays are similar to other East Sussex maintained day schools, and there is no boarding provision. Updated holiday lists are regularly sent out to parents and are available on request from the school (and the East Sussex schools’ term dates are also on the ESCC website). During the school year, in addition to the normal school holidays, there are five staff in-service training days when the school is closed to pupils, and we do our best to ensure that parents /carers are given at least six weeks notice of these days (we usually know them a year in advance).


East Sussex schools operate a ‘six term year’, which allows each term to be of roughly equal length, and this is a great benefit to us when we are planning the curriculum.
