School year 2020 to 2021 in Andover

After a VERY long time away from school all children, will all children be returning in September?

Each school set-up to go back due to Covid-19 is different, so please be sure that you know what time you need to drop them off, and where and when pick up is.

You will need to check school emails, Facebook pages and websites for your child’s return to school details.

The ELSA support website have written a free story which you can download to help children feel positive about returning to school.

When do the kids go back to school? When is the next school holiday happening? And when is the next inset day ?

These are among the questions parents are always asking… and when your child is at school there are so many dates and times to remember.

Here we have added the Hampshire school dates , which all Andover schools follow (except for Rookwood, as they have longer holidays than the rest of us – visit the Rookwood website here for dates).
