Glasgow School Holidays 2024/25

Glasgow School holidays are always fun, even if they’re just for a day. They give you time to catch up on the latest movies, try out the hottest gaming titles and see friends from other schools.

However, none of these holiday events will be viable without planning. Also, no planning would work if you don’t know when you’ll be having holidays.

If you’re schooling or enrolling a kid in a Glasgow school and you’re curious about when you’ll be having school holidays, you’re at the right place.

This post will outline all the Glasgow school holidays that the council has announced yet and when they’re taking place.

Glasgow Council School Holidays 2024/25

For every academic session, the Glasgow council publishes a schedule including all school holidays in the county. All schools in Glasgow adhere to it and take the holidays as required.

If you want to know when you’ll be having holidays and breaks, you can use the Glasgow council website or this website.

Here is a list of all Glasgow school holidays from the council’s website, along with their dates and the purpose.

Glasgow September Weekend (Autumn Half Term Holiday)

The September weekend is usually one of the first holidays of the term after resumption on a regular academic session.

The September weekend marks the middle of the autumn academic session, and it involves taking a Friday and a Monday off from schooling activities.

  Fife School Holidays 2024/25

Councils set the September weekend dates for schools in their vicinity, and for Hampshire, it’s on Friday, September 27th, 2024, and Monday, September 30th, 2024.

Glasgow October Break (Autumn Holidays)

The October break marks the end of the academic session in October. It’s a week-long holiday that commences from Monday, October 14th, to Friday, October 18th, 2024. However, kids won’t return to their schools until Monday, October 21st, 2024.

It’s one of the lengthier holidays for Scottish students outside those set aside to celebrate a religious event like Christmas or Easter.

Glasgow Christmas/New Year Holiday

The Christmas and New Year’s Holidays start towards the end of the calendar year before Christmas and end after New Year.

This holiday lasts for two weeks, making it one of the lengthiest holidays for the session.

Schools across Glasgow will close by 2:30 pm on Friday, December 20th, 2024, to commence the holidays. The schools will resume on Wednesday, January 6th, 2025.

Glasgow February Break (Spring Midterm Holiday)

After the Christmas and New Year’s Holidays, Glasgow schools won’t have another break until Monday, February 17th, 2025.

Of course, this isn’t Valentine’s break, it is to mark the middle of the Spring term, and like other midterm breaks, it lasts for two days.

Schools won’t open on Monday, February 17th, 2025, to Wednesday, February 19th, 2025, to mark the middle of the Spring term.

Glasgow Easter/Spring Break

The lengthiest break for the 2024/25 session is a joint one; for the Spring Break and to commemorate Easter.

This break lasts for almost three weeks, starting with a 2:30 pm closure on Friday, April 4th, 2025. It continues until Monday, April 21st, 2025, when all schools reopen and resume academic activities.

  South Lanarkshire School Holidays 2024/25

This holiday is the best opportunity for vacations, picnics, visitations, and similar activities that you’ve always wanted to do.

Glasgow May Day

There is also a holiday for all Lanarkshire schools on Monday, May 5th, 2025, to commemorate the May Day celebration of the previous day.

May Day marks International Workers Day for all workers around the world. While the day happens to be a Sunday, schools and related institutions can take the closest working day off to commemorate the day.

This holiday is the first of the three holidays in May, making it the month with the most holidays in the year.

Glasgow May Weekend Holiday

All schools in Lanarkshire will take a local holiday on Friday, May 23rd, to Monday, May 26th, 2025. The local holiday is specific to the county and not to the entire State of Glasgow or even Scotland.

Glasgow Summer Break

On Wednesday, June 25th, 2025, all schools in Glasgow will close by 1 pm for the summer break.

The council has decided on the resumption date after this break, and the resumption date is Wednesday, August 16th, 2025 as confirmed by official.
