Easter holidays 2023 Manchester: when do schools break up for Easter - school term dates

Here is when the Easter holidays fall this year in Greater Manchester.

Easter is just around the corner, and while the weekend might be the most important date in the Christian calendar, for many of us it means chocolate, Easter bunnies - and most importantly school holidays. Whether you’re planning on spending some well earned days off at home, or travelling to the sun, the spring holidays are sure to be welcomed by children and parents alike.

Councils around Greater Manchester have all published the 2023 school term dates in order to help parents keep track of their children’s schedules - and to avoid that awkward drop-off at a closed school.

All ten metropolitan boroughs in the Greater Manchester area including Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, Wigan, have their Easter break on the same dates. Here’s when schools close for Easter in 2023.
