When do schools in Liverpool break up for summer 2022? Date of UK summer holidays - when autumn term starts

Pupils in Liverpool have already made their return from the summer half-term holiday on Monday, June 6 - but when is the summer break to end the current academic year?

With the recent half-term break behind them, school kids throughout Liverpool and the surrounding Merseyside area will draw their attention to the next school holidays - the summer break.

In what is the longest break of the entire school calendar year, the summer holidays act as a bookend for the current academic year; pupils and students will then either move up a year, or advance to the next stage - whether that be primary school, secondary school or university for example.

Liverpudlians have recently enjoyed yet another extended four-day weekend to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee - a bank holiday that consisted of one new date, as well as pushing back the already well-established late-May bank holiday.

The wait is expected to be another two months, with the next day off taking place in the month of August.

Known as the late summer bank holiday, the date that this falls on is Monday, 29 August 2022.
