February half term dates: The number of weeks until schools break up


There are just a few short weeks until children across the UK will get a week off school for February half term, giving them the chance to rest before completing the Easter term. How many weeks away is February half term?

It doesn’t feel very long ago that kids were returning to school after the Christmas break, but February half term is fast approaching.

Spring half term gives children – and teachers – a break before continuing the school term through to Easter.

For most schools, February half term will be a week off school.

The dates of half term vary at schools across the country.

Again, the dates may vary between different schools, but generally the summer holidays will run from July 21 to September 1.

So, the start date of the summer holiday is almost exactly six months – or 26 weeks – away.

If you’ve got children, now is the time to start planning activities for the February half term.

Although the summer holidays are still six months away, it’s never too early to decide whether your family will be going away this year, and if so to start planning and saving for a family getaway.
