Term Dates 2019-20

Wakefield Music Services follow the term dates as published by Wakefield Council.  In addition there are times in the year where instrumental teachers may be involved in staff training or school concerts. We try wherever possible to match these to those training days that take place in school so as not to cause too much disruption. Lessons run in term time except for days where training and staff band concerts take place.
