What are the dates of the school holidays?

In the United Kingdom, the school year begins in September - it ends in the 3rd week of July: the summer holidays only last 5 weeks.

The school year has 3 terms, with 2 weeks of vacation between each term.

The terms are divided into half-terms of about 6 weeks, with a week of vacation between the 2.

The days of English schoolchildren are shorter (usually 8am - 3:30pm) than those of European schoolchildren - but they also have fewer vacation days in the year.
