Mid-year Diary

Dates: 01 July 2024 – 03 August 2025

Let’s start with our popular mid-year diaries, the perfect option for planning out this summer and beyond. Our range of mid-year diaries feature a range of stylish cover options, with choices of hardbacks or softbacks, A4 and A5 and daily or week-to-view format options, so you can really create your very own mid-year diary that suits your needs. Our mid-year diaries run from 1st July 2024 to 3rd August 2025, unlike our academic diaries which follow school, university and college dates, and are great if you’re looking for a classic diary to drop in those all-important dates. 

With yearly and monthly calendar spreads at the beginning and daily or weekly planning spreads throughout, you can map out your whole year, by month, by week and by each day.  Featuring plenty of notes pages at the back too, so you can jot down those mustn’t forget thoughts, whenever they strike.

Next up is our brand-new range of 2024-2025 academic diaries! As requested by you, we got to work creating the dream academic diary with the help of some lovely academic students so we could create a weekly academic diary that is filled with genuinely useful content.

Our range of academic diaries runs from 29th August 2024 to 31st August 2025 and is focused on helping you take control and stay organised through every day of your school, college or university studies. With study timetables, deadline trackers, project/exam planners, monthly calendar pages and weekly planning spreads, this academic diary is perfect for anyone looking to get organised for the academic year ahead.

Exam or course-work periods can feel stressful and high-pressured for many, so we’ve made sure to include plenty of self-care essentials too. Throughout the academic diary, you’ll find self-care prompts to encourage you to take healthy regular breaks, a place to jot down your personal pick-me-ups, a weekly mood tracker and weekly intentions and reflections, to remind you to take good care of yourself. Plus so much more!
