British Education System


The British academic year runs from September to July and is split into three terms: autumn, spring and summer, with a one or two week half-term holiday in the middle of each. The exact dates will differ between  UK regions and state & private schools.

Academic students at London Tutorial College follow the term dates, excluding school holidays during Christmas, Easter, summer and half term holidays. Alternatively, bespoke programmes can be arranged. 

Intensive English or preparatory course students are not bound by term dates but need to note that we are closed for all bank and public holidays in the UK and for one week at Christmas.
