Derbyshire is unusual. Have a long weekend over Easter, back to school for a couple of weeks then two weeks off.

We are the same as SueW - just have a long weekend for Easter, back to school, then we break up on 4th April and go back for the summer term on 21st April.

Thanks, that what I had heard that some were taking long breaks over easter and then the usual 2 weeks off in April.

Im trying to find out when the flights are cheap in April and it wasn't making any sense. So now I know why the airlines are keeping the prices high throughout that whole April period.

I know , it sucks, they are going to be raking it in.

Same as Alibubbles

Our schools dates are

7th Jan - School Opens
14th Feb - school closes (training day on the 15th)
25th Feb School opens

21&24th march (Good Friday and Easter Monday I think)- school closed

25th School opens again

4th April School Closes

21st April School Opens

So SueW - ours sounds similar to yours.

Our 'Easter Break' is a long weekend, with the 'Spring Break' a few weeks later to make the terms more equal. That is Somerset, and while odd to not have 2 weeks at Easter, seems to make the most sense.

DD's school actually has the same hols as Alibubbles but I used to work there and some of the staff have children in other schools in Notts, Derbys and Leics.

Derbyshire's Spring Break is 5 April 2008 to 20 April wth 25 March (Tuesday after Easter) recommended as an Inset day.

Nottinghamshire's is 15 March 2008 to 30 March 2008

Leicestershire is 21 March 2008 to 6 April 2008

Dates include weekends.

So it's entirely possible holiday prices could be high from 15 March all the way through to around 20 April.

So Easter break next year is anytime from
Last day 14 Feb - First day back Mon 21 April
and covers 5 week period.

Yep Sue airline prices high for 5 weeks.
If you are planning to get away, book earlier rather than later if you see a good price, as the airlines will be making the most of it closer to departure dates.
