Following the Government’s instruction that all schools are to hold an additional bank holiday this academic year to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, Somerset schools have in almost all cases agreed to hold this on Friday the 22nd of October, the last day of this half term. At Huish Episcopi we had originally planned to use that day as an INSET day, but have decided to join other schools in allocating it as a Bank Holiday instead. This means that the INSET day will now be on Monday 1st of November, the first day back after the half term break.
The Academy will therefore be shut to all students on both the 22nd October and 1st November.
We apologise for any inconvenience that this might cause.
