Boarding Schools in the UK have three terms. Each school sets its own term dates so they can vary, but here is a general guide:
• Autumn term or Michaelmas : September until mid-December. The autumn half-term holiday is a week or two weeks at the end of October
• Spring term or Lent: early January until Easter. The spring half-term holiday is a week in February
• Summer Trinity: after Easter until early July. The summer half-term holiday is a week at the end of May.
However, during each term , students will have an optional Exeat to leave the school as well as Half-Term break for around 10 days.If students choose not toreturn home, then they will need to stay with a guardian. The Scholars Row also provide a guardianship service for those student during this school break to provide another academic assistant and other creative activities.
