ours will get study leave from may half term, the A2 exams are not normally prior to that. There will be teaching in some subjects in the early part of the sumer term - no-one wants to spend half a term revising!
Unlikely to be March, but then again, they won't be actually learning much new after Easter so it's not impossible.
Our school probably won't start study leave until the May half term which is later than most (some exams will already have started!) as they know from past experience what boys can be like if left to their own devices.
DS has his A2s in, I think, May/June of 2013. I was just wondering when your dcs will/did have their last lessons, and start their study leave? My friend says they don't go back after the Easter holidays, but as that starts in late March it doesn't seem to give them much time, esp. as DS only seems to have one or two lessons a day!
