Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday in June 2022

Due to new national regulations to reduce the minimum number of sessions schools are required to meet in the academic year 2021/22, and to enable everyone to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen, the late May Bank Holiday weekend will be moved to Thursday 2 June 2022, with an additional Bank Holiday on Friday 3 June. This will see a four-day weekend to celebrate the Jubilee.

The number of teaching days has therefore been reduced from 190 to 189. As most schools are on holiday during the week of the four day weekend, the finish date at the end of the summer term has been amended to reflect the reduction in the required number of teaching days.

This update came into force on 1 June 2021.
