2018-19 TD Days (School Closed to pupils)

During each school year, schools select five days when they close for staff training events. These are known as ‘teacher development (TD) days’. At Bowerhill School, we usually join these days onto holidays to minimise disruption for parents and children. We will also advise you of the content of the TD days so that you know that your additional child care is being put to good use.
