France School Holidays



The 31 French Education Academies have been divided into three Zones (Zone A, Zone B and Zone C), Corsica and 5 Overseas Departments. The majority of schools in France are located in Zones A, B and C where the School Holiday Calendar is decided by the French Ministry of Education. The School Holiday Dates for Overseas Departments of Guadeloupe, Guyane, Martinique, Mayotte and Reunion are decided by the Local Director of Education in that area. The Summer and Christmas Schools Holiday Dates in Zones A, B and C are the same for all Schools but the Winter and Spring Holidays are different in each zone. School Holiday Dates have been added for all Zones, Academies, Regions, Departments, Towns and Ski Resorts.
