Edinburgh Schools Planning Shorter Christmas Break

Car Hire Edinburgh Airport bring some news of potential changes to the school holidays in the city.

School holiday plans may be about to change for children in Edinburgh, for the Christmas break in 2016 and 2017 according to council plans. There is a chance children may get a shorter winter break by about a week.

The reason for the shorter breaks in 2016 and 2017 are because of when Christmas day falls on, the date of Easter and local holidays. For 2016/17 the holidays would begin on Friday 23rd December until Wednesday 4th January, then for 2017/18 it would be Friday 22nd December through to Thursday 4th January.

Reports in local newspapers had suggested that the shortening of the Christmas break in schools would mean a longer summer holiday to compensate. In Scotland the holidays for schools are set individually by each local council, but do generally follow a similar pattern.
