Can I change my academic year dates once the academic year has started?

Once an academic year has started, you can't change its start date but you can change its end date. Please be aware that:

  1. If you shorten your academic year then homework topics that were due to be covered in any deleted weeks will be moved into the remaining weeks of the year.
  2. If you extend your academic year then you will need to add homework content to any additional weeks manually.
See our article on how to add topics manually here:

If you need to go ahead and change your academic year end date please contact us at schoolsupport@sparx.co.uk with the new date and we will make these changes for you.
