british school year
The UK and Canadian school years align, so that it makes it easy to start teaching in the UK, as soon as you qualify. Australian and New Zealand teachers take up a contract in September or at the beginning of Term 2 in January or even in April, for Term 3.
The British Academic Year runs from September to July and is split into three terms, with a one or two-week half-term holiday in the middle of each. Each area will have slightly different term times, but approximate dates are listed below. Click here to check exact holiday dates for your area. Term dates are different in Scotland and Northern Ireland. This means you never work for more than 6 weeks without at least a week off and that there are 13 weeks in an academic year that you can travel and explore the UK and Europe. All our teachers enjoy exploring Europe and ticking off places like Paris, Rome, Barcelona, Dublin and Berlin, while based in the UK
Compulsory schooling begins at the age of five. Pupils first attend primary school, which lasts for six years. Often primary school in the UK is divided into infant school (the first two years) and junior school (the following 4 years).
After primary school, students go to secondary school until they are sixteen (practical emphasis) or 18 (secondary school with 6th form – academic emphasis).
