There are 110 schools within the area including 56 primary and 23 secondary schools as well as 6 nurseries, 5 special schools, 9 further education colleges and two universities. The latter two categories have some ability to set their own term dates. For those following the council calendar, the first day on term is on 5th September and the term lasts until Christmas holidays 2016 start on 21st December with a pause for October half term from 24th for one week. Christmas finishes on 3rd January and the second term continues until Easter on 31st March with the February half term breaking this up, from 13th to 17th February. Finally, the last term runs from 18th April until 21st July with the May half term from 29th May.
