UK Term Dates 2020/2021

Term dates in the UK are standardised and very similiar to those in United Arab Emirates, making a move to the UK a great option for teachers who want to spend time with friends and family back home during the holidays.

The dates for 2020/2021 are below, although it’s worth noting that all schools are allocated 5 inset days which they may add to the beginning or end of term to extend the break, making individual school term dates variable – so check your schools calendar!
