Well folks, here we are at the end of day one of my Wiltshire Whirlwind Tour. I’m staying the night at Marlborough College, I’ve just consumed a vast pizza covered in chilli and pepperoni and all is right with the world, for a I have just had a terrific day’s visit to Swindon Academy!

Swindon 030308 one way…

And what a great way to start this monster week of events: I was HUGELY impressed with this school – not ‘just’ with its atmosphere of commitment and enthusiasm, but also (hurrah!) with the impeccably high quality of attention (and questions!) I received from its students throughout the day. Doing FOUR sessions – plus a quick informal chat in the library at the end – has left me with a delightfully frazzled sensation and the knowledge of a day well seized (hee hee hee!) My thanks to Ms Ellis and the other staff for their warm welcome. And thanks, too, of course, to Swindon Academy’s students: you were a pleasure to speak to!

Swindon 030308 …and the other side!

I’d write more, but I might fall asleep on the keyboard, and whenever that happens (see THE ENTHOVEN IS DEAD, right) it’s almost impossible to get the pink stains out of the keys.  😉

Instead I’ll just say that if the rest of the week carries on like today, it’s going to be AWESOME.
