For term time only places we follow the Cheshire West & Chester term dates which can be found here. For term time only funding one of our terms per academic year is a week shorter than the Cheshire West & Chester dates because we do not have inset days.

In the unlikely event that our dates are different they will be published below and we will discuss the dates with any parents whose child attends term time only.
