The academic year follows the Lancashire County Council calendar. Blackburn with Darwen usually follow the LCC calendar but for 2016/17 revised their original calendar and consulted on a second model which was subsequently adopted. As a result there are likely to be differences in the term dates within BwD.

 

2015-16

For reference, here is our at-a-glance calendar of term dates for the previous year, 2015-16.

Pupils enjoy school; feel challenged, supported and safe.

With attendance at 95% it's no coincidence we have excellent results.
