Students at a Grimsby school are set to have different term times from other North East Lincolnshire schools.
The new term structure will benefit students
Tollbar Business and Enterprise College is to introduce a five term year because it is on the Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire border.
Headteacher David Hampson said term structures in the two counties were different which had posed problems due to the school's catchment area.
The change is due to come into force next September.
The school was awarded foundation status in September this year, which means Tollbar can control the dates of its own terms.
Mr Hampson said it now means the school can work on a structure which is a compromise between the Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire term times, while maintaining standards of education.
He said: "We have had problems at this school with term times. We have nearly 2,000 pupils and a third of those come from Lincolnshire and the rest from North East Lincolnshire.
"We are in a no win situation, so we have tried to come up with the most reasonable terms which will benefit students."
Students will also start school earlier in September than their North East Lincolnshire counterparts and finish later in December, with a two-week break in October.
Mr Hampson added: "This new term practice will mean our students will be at more of an educational advantage as it maximises teaching time and will also benefit the staff."
