Staggering School Holidays

Aberdeen is both a city and a local education authority covering the city itself but not the larger Aberdeenshire area. The Local Education Authority and Council in Aberdeen are responsible for organising the school holiday dates for the fifty seven primary schools, fifteen secondary schools, three nurseries, nine special schools and two colleges. The 2017 School Holidays in Aberdeen have been decided to enable parents to make plans for childcare and book holidays. The Christmas Holiday 2016 is from 24th December to 8th January 2017, the Easter Break 2017 is from the 1st to 18th April and the 2017 Summer Holiday is from 1st July to 21st August. In Aberdeen there are also two universities, the University of Aberdeen and the Robert Gordon University (RGU) and two Independent Schools, RGU and St Margaret’s School for Girls. Both Universities and the Independent Schools are responsible for deciding the school terms, term dates and half term dates for 2017.
