Looking for events?

Please note: In the past, we have spoken to some parents/guardians that searched the internet for Standish Community High School holiday dates (or other similar search terms) and were misinformed by taking dates found on other websites to be correct. The only reliable source for this information is provided by Standish Community High School itself, such as on this very web page or on the Term Dates page in the student planner that is issued to every student each year.

Term Dates

Stay informed and plan ahead by taking a look at the term dates below – inset days (in-service training days) and half term/seasonal breaks are clearly indicated. A downloadable (PDF) version is available. Last updated 03/09/2019.
