How long should I keep my credit card?

Just applied and been approved for a capital one credit card at 30 something% Apr with a £400 limit and chose to pay off in full via direct debit.

I plan to use this card purely to buy something that I have the funds for then pay it off in full to build credit and just in case for emergencies.

How long should I keep this card for? 6month? A year?
Just to give you a rough idea my clearscore rating is 340/700(on par with my area)
