Just one week to go before the students leave for the summer.
And then just half a week and I am OFF WORK for Five Weeks.
I can't believe I have survived my first academic year as a Progress Coach.
I have loved seeing my first year students grow and helped my second year students onto the next stage of their journey.
I will miss the ones who have left but I am looking forward to the new students starting in September.
I have also been given the extra responsibility of looking after the high fliers next year.
I will have the Inspire students - the ones who are expected to go on to Oxford and Cambridge, those who plan to study medicine, Veterinary Science and Dentistry.
I will be guidng them through the UCAS process, writing their references and taking responsibility for their pastoral care.
It will be challenging but I am looking forward to it.
Today I met my first Inspire groups and I wanted to give a good impression which is why I wore my old favourite Gap dress which slots easily into the smart/casual part of my wardrobe.
I love the way clothes can make you feel safe, in control and calm. This dress is the sartorial equivalent of a swan. On the surface it makes me look calm while underneath I am kicking away furiously to get where I want to go.
Do you have old faithfuls too?
