Staggering School Holidays

Argyll and Bute council is responsible for the schools within the Scottish council area of the same name. These include 75 primary and 11 secondary schools as well as three specialist schools. There is also one independent school within the area, the Lomond School which offers full boarding. The council has grouped the schools into areas and each of these areas can set their own holiday dates and term times depending on their requirements. For example, the Mid Argyll school holidays have term one running from 17th August through to 23rd December, term two from January 9th through to March 31st and the final, third term from 18th April to 30th June. Within these dates are mid-term breaks such as from 14th-27th October for the autumn half term dates. Other schools areas include the Oban, Lore and Isles area, Cowal and the Helensburgh and Lomond school holidays as well as for isolated areas such as Mull and Islay and Jura.
