People go on vacation. Schools don't. We speak of schools being on "break." My daughter started her Easter break yesterday.

I am a marketing person(I am selling school products). When school is in holidays, I m reporting to my manager that School is in leave or on leave. Which one is correct? in leave or on leave? Kindly tell your maid id or mobile. I often clear my English grammatical doubts.

"On" is the word you want.

People may be 'on leave', but I have never heard of a school being 'on leave',

That's completely unconnected to the question about "in/on vacation". Please start a new thread for "In terms of". When you start that new thread, write some sentences of your own using the phrase "In terms of" and then we can comment on whether or not you are using it correctly.
