The next calendar year marks the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. During a school half term there is an additional Bank Holiday on 3rd June 2022 to create a four-day weekend in recognition of the first time that a British monarch has reached this milestone. 


As the 3rd June falls within half term, the government have advised schools to allocate a day during the year as additional holiday. 


At both Highfield Schools we have chosen Friday 22nd July as an additional holiday. Therefore both our schools will break up on Thursday 21st July, a day earlier than planned. We have changed the term dates on the website and calendar accordingly.
