Monday May 8th - Bank Holiday in lieu of the Coronation

In November, the government announced a one-off bank holiday on Monday 8 May to mark the coronation of His Majesty King Charles III.

The Education (School Day and School Year) (England) Regulations 1999 have been updated and schools are not required to make up the hours of the additional bank holiday. Schools and further education providers are not expected to remain open, and it should be treated as any normal bank holiday.


The dates above are subject to change.
