Glasgow Council has released a list of holiday dates for schools in Glasgow, including Easter

Spring is officially here, and that means the countdown to the two week Easter break is well under way - as if the shops being filled with Easter eggs already wasn’t a reminder enough! The Easter break always seems to come round quickly, and is the first proper break for children and teachers since Christmas.

While pupils across Glasgow get excited about the prospect of an extended break from classes, it is, however, still crucial for parents to ensure their children return to school on time. Therefore, knowing when their breaks are in advance helps with planning - especially to get day trips booked up.
