When are the October holidays 2022 Liverpool? Date of autumn half term break - and when schools go back?

Schools in Liverpool have confirmed the official dates of the Autumn holidays in 2022 - the first holiday of the next academic year.

School children in Liverpool and the surrounding Merseyside area are looking ahead to the first holidays of the next academic year - the October holidays.

The current school year is set to end soon, with the much-anticipated six week summer break approaching rapidly on the horizon as kids throughout the UK prepare for later nights, as well as enjoying many of Liverpool’s fun-filled activities to spend time with friends and family.

However, this has raised the question as to when is the half-term break that follows when kids return to classrooms in September 2022.

The October holidays are a popular time for families to book a staycation away somewhere, or travel abroad for a short break in sun-baked countries like Spain or Cyprus, so parents must be desperate to find out all the information they can ahead of time.

When is it scheduled to take place? When will Liverpool schools break up in October and when are children expected to return to the classroom? Here is everything you need to know.
