2022-23 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.

This academic year, the remaining TD days will be on the following days:

  • Thursday 1st September 2022
  • Friday 2nd September 2022
  • Tuesday 3rd January 2023
  • Monday 5th June 2023
  • Monday 3rd July 2023
