2022 Spring Term

Please note this is a 12 Week Term starting from the 4th January which will run throughout the February Half Term until 28th March. The courts are then scheduled to be closed for court cleaning and painting from the 29th March – 24th April. The court maintenance however is weather dependent therefore we may need to adjust the 12 week term dates slightly, if this is to happen you will be notified via email with the updated dates.
