I'm learning English and I have question about how to use when in a question.

for ex- if I want to ask someone when is the child school closes for holiday. how should I frame the question and which is the correct sentence structure to use.

    "When does the school close for the holidays?" Since the school year is divided into three terms, many people would say "When does term end?" or "When is the end of term?" Dec 18, 2019 at 13:15

The right way to say it would be "When does the school close for the holidays?".

Generally speaking, if "when" is used in a question, it is almost always placed at the beginning of the sentence.
