09:30 - Flight arrivals are coming in thick and fast. Most flight delays have been minor and we are still on schedule. Two coaches (buses) have now left Heathrow and are on their way to Harlaxton. We expect both coaches (with 103 students) to arrive at Harlaxton between 11:30 and 12:00 (UK time). A final third coach remains at Heathrow awaiting the later flight arrivals.

11:20 - The first coach is about 10 minutes away.

11:30 - The first coach with 54 students has arrived. Students were greeted by staff and given a formal welcome by Dr Kingsley. Now the fun begins: finding rooms, unpacking, getting a bite to eat and exploring a new home.
