Change of May Bank Holiday 2020

(Posted on 17/06/19)

Next year's early May bank holiday will be moved back by four days for the whole of the UK to coincide with the 75th anniversary of VE Day.

May Day is traditionally held on a Monday but will be put back to Friday 8 May 2020.

VE Day, or Victory in Europe Day, marks the day towards the end of World War Two when fighting against Nazi Germany came to an end in Europe.

The holiday will form part of a three-day weekend of commemorative events, to pay tribute to those who served in one of the most significant events in our country’s history.

Please note therefore, that the School will be closed from Thursday 7th May 2020 to Monday 11th May 2020.
