Term dates 2018-2019

See the link below for term dates from Hertfordshire County Council for maintained schools.


Note that as a secondary academy school, Sandringham can vary these dates, in consultation with other secondary schools in the St. Albans and Harpenden area. In particular, Staff Training days are typically inserted at the start or end of terms and the timing of the Easter holidays is set for the maximum benefit of our GCSE and A-level students.

The calendar for 2018-2019 will be updated during this year once these decisions have been made.
