The Bury Metropolitan Borough Council is responsible for the schools within the Bury area and is one of the ten district councils in Greater Manchester. The council sets school holiday dates but individual schools do have some autonomy to change these slightly. For the coming year, the council has established the term starts on 1st September and runs until 23rd December with the October half term from 24th-28th. The spring term resumes after the Christmas holidays 2016 and runs from 9th January to 31st March with the February half term from 20th-24th. The final spring term runs from 18th April until 21st July with the half term from 29th May to 2nd June. This applies to 64 primary schools and 16 secondary schools as well as one nursery and three special schools. There are two further education colleges, Bury College and Holy Cross College, who set their own term dates.

The Inset Days for the Local Education Authority Schools in Bury are decided by the individual schools. Bury Data Source
