Full list of UK term dates

The Autumn 2021 academic term is just about to start for kids across the UK, and as travel restrictions ease, many British families will want to start planning their year ahead.

We've compiled a complete list of all of the term time dates, as well as the half term holidays for parents and students to reference.

For those who would like maximise their time off and plan a long weekend break, we've also included the bank holiday dates.

As terms are normally split into three big chunks, separated into two half terms, kids will get to enjoy six breaks per school year.

The length and date of holidays will vary slightly between local authorities.

When are the 2021 school holidays?

Below is a list of the 2021 school holidays:

Summer holiday: Monday, July 26 – Tuesday, August 31
