We recognise the importance of children being in school and have therefore attached the school term dates for the upcoming  years. This will enable families to book holidays during school holiday times.

School holiday dates are pre-arranged between Derby City and Derbyshire local authority education teams.

Inset days are set for the next academic year by February half term again maximising the notice given to parents.

School holiday dates are also available on the Derby City website:
