Further to a consultation involving all stakeholders of our school, I would like to relay information relating to King's Academy Ringmer's term dates for 2024-2025. Following a significantly positive response, we will be piloting a 2 week half term in October 2024-2025, with a slightly extended summer term.

This will work as follows:

  • 2 week October half term - (finishing on Friday 18th October rather than Friday 25th, returning Monday 4th November)
  • Finishing on Thursday 24th July, rather than Tuesday 22nd July.

We believe that this will have positive effects on reducing illness and absence rates for students and staff, as well as supporting our wider recruitment and retention of the best staff available. In addition, by having a two-week October half term, families can take advantage of cheaper holiday prices should they wish and avoid missing school. We have excellent attendance which is well above national and local schools, so a reminder that any holiday outside of these times is unauthorised absence.

Mr. Harvey.
