School Term Dates

Our term dates for the 2023-2024 and 2024-2025 school years are shown below.  Please note that the dates are inclusive and show when the school is open to pupils.  The inset days listed below each table are staff training days and the school is closed to allow for staff training on and off site. You can view and download a PDF file of our term dates by clicking on the links at the bottom of this page. 

Important: Parents and prospective parents of students at Mrs Bland’s School should be aware that the school's term dates do not always align to the term dates published by West Berkshire Council. This is due to specific school circumstances and the scheduling of staff training days. Parents are advised to check with the school if a specific date is key to your plans, e.g. before making a holiday booking.
