Seven week summer holiday for Catholic Academy Trust schools.

Seven week summer holiday for Catholic Academy Trust schools.

Parents were left furious after a school trust announced pupils would be getting a seven week summer holiday instead of six.

The decision will see thousands of children enjoy a longer summer break throughout the Nicholas Postgate Catholic Academy Trust in Teesside.

While the news will be welcomed by pupils, parents were said to be "up in arms" about the decision, which they say will amount of higher childcare costs.

However, the trust has explained that no extra holidays have actually been added to the school year- rather a week from the usual two week Easter break has been removed and added to the summer holidays.
