Worcestershire County Council is the authority that oversees schooling in the county and sets matters such as school holiday dates. The council is based in County Hall in Worcester and looks after children in 280 schools. These include 185 primary and 64 secondary schools, 2 nurseries, 12 special schools, four further education colleges and one university, the University of Worcester. The last two groups can set their own term dates independent of the council. For the other schools, the year features three terms. The first one, autumn, starts on 3rd September and continues until the Christmas holidays 2016 start on 18th December with a half term break from 23rd October to 2nd November. After Christmas, the spring term lasts from 4th January until 24th March for the Easter break 2017 apart from the February half term from 12th – 22nd February. Easter finishes on 11th April so the summer term fills the period until 22nd July, with the May half term week from the 27th.

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