With their recent half-term holidays behind them, school kids in Bristol and throughout the South West of England will draw their attention to the next school holidays - the summer break.

In what is renowned for being the longest break of the entire school calendar year, the summer holidays act as a bookend for the current academic year; pupils and students will move on to the next stage of their learning, whether that be moving up a year or advancing to the next stage - whether that be primary school, secondary school or university for example.

Here is everything you need to know about when schools in Bristol are due to finish this summer, as well as when they are expected to return and the next bank holiday.

When did Bristol school kids return from their half-term break?

Children have only recently returned to the classroom as a result of the recent half-term break at schools in Bristol.

The week off consisted of celebrations for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee - an extended weekend to mark the 70th anniversary of Her Majesty as the UK’s head of state.

They returned on Monday 6 June with the break starting on Monday, 30 May.

How long are pupils back in school for?

The second half of the summer term for schools across the Bristol region is expected to last just shy of two months in total.

School kids will be glad to know that school is out after just seven more weeks of learning.

When do schools finish for the summer break?

According to Bristol City Council, the summer holidays for schools across the region are due to begin on Friday, 22 July 2022.

Bristolians have recently enjoyed yet another extended four-day weekend to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee - a bank holiday that consisted of one new bank holiday date, as well as pushing back the already established late-May bank holiday.

This came not even a month after the city enjoyed yet another extended bank holiday weekend to celebrate the Easter holidays.

You will be surprised - and maybe a little disappointed - to know that there is a sizable gap from now until the next bank holiday in the country.

The wait is expected to be another two months, with the next day off taking place in the month of August.

Known as the late summer bank holiday, the date that this falls on is Monday, 29 August 2022.

When are Bristol school kids returning to school for the Autumn term?

Primary and secondary school children in Bristol will be making their return to classrooms following six weeks of late nights, as well as fun with friends and family throughout the  summer holidays.

According to the Bristol City Council website, the next academic year will begin on Thursday, 1 September.

The half-term break will then take place from 24 October to 30 October, with the term coming to a conclusion to celebrate the Christmas festivities on Friday, 16 December.
