Academic Term Dates 


IMG_8390Please note that Blackpool Sixth does not authorise students to take holidays in term-time. Please can parents and students use the term date information provided to plan holidays. Blackpool Sixth, therefore, does not permit holidays during term time and will refuse to readmit a student who takes an unauthorised holiday.
