This page should help with your planning for school holidays and the like. We have listed every council area for 22/23. As we’re sure you’re aware, the holiday dates don’t change that often but we’ll keep our eye open and make any necessary changes. Maybe bookmark this page and come back regularly.

We have also put direct links to the relevant council site for their official calendar. Just click on the dates, below the names of the council, to be taken to the school year you need.

We have organised this page slightly differently to most timetables, telling you when the actual holidays start and finish (not including weekend). So they tend to run Monday to Friday, depending on the individual school authority. These are HOLIDAY DATES and not term times.

Finally, remember individual schools have their own schedule of in-service, teacher training days etc.

TORFAEN

We have spoken to Torfaen Education Department and they tell us that the summer holiday term ends on the 1st, which means back to school on Friday 2nd. That however isn’t the case for all schools. Some have taken inset days, while others are staggering their return to let newer pupils settle in.

It is always worth checking with your own child’s school for the exact date.
