Opening day of school

You’ll have to have your children’s stationary and school supplies ready by September 1 as that’s the opening day of academic year for most schools in the UK. Schools in Hampshire and some other areas of the country have an inset day on September 1, so their term opens on September 2.

Regional differences

There are always some minor regional differences so you may find that your child’s school break up for half-term at different times or begin terms later due to inset days. For example, schools in Wiltshire are off for the autumn half-term between Thursday 23 October 2014 and Friday 31 October 2014. For minor regional differences, you should check out your local council’s website.
