Whether you are looking to make plans for when the kids are off or plan your work schedule around those days, knowing the school holidays in advance can really help you plan activities, vacations, and childcare. If you’re wondering when the school holidays are for where you live, we’ve got a round up of the school holidays 2021, with dates into 2022 for schools in different places.

School Holidays 2021-2022

Due to Covid-19, the next school year might continue to be a mix of home schooling and in-school teaching. Each country, area or individual school will share information on how they plan to return safely for students, teachers and staff. However, the following term holidays are currently in place. We will update as we become aware of any major changes.

There are guidelines now in place in many schools to discourage parents removing their children unnecessarily (apart from illness) during term-time – in some places for example, you even risk a daily fine for taking your child out of school without permission! So it pays to be savvy about when your child is meant to be in school.
