LRC2 is now open and availalbe to students! This is a group study room (with computers) located on the ground floor of the college - you'll find the entrance near the Student Welfare office, at the bottom of the chapel stairs. Please ask in the main LRC if you need directions. 

There are 18 laptops available to use in the room or you can bring your own device and access the college wi-fi. Our IT Support technician Adele will be located in LRC2 on Mondays and Tuesdays, so students are advised to direct any IT issues there. Wednesday to Friday, the room is staffed by LRC officers, who can help you access online resources and answer your Moodle questions (or direct you to someone who can, if it's an especially tricky question!).

The LRC2 code of conduct can be found in your student diary (or here) - please remember that food and drink are not allowed and that it is a study space, not a recreational area.

LRC2 opening hours
Mondays: 11.25 am - 4.00 pm
Wednesdays: 10.40 am - 3.30 pm
Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays: 10.40 am - 4.00 pm

We hope to see lots of you make use of this fantastic new space!

Sociology workshops

Sociology workshops will be taking place every Wednesday from 1.00 pm until 3.00 pm in room 218.

The workshops offer you the opportunity to revise sociological topics either as a group or alone, be mentored by a university graduate, and receive extra help from teachers of Sociology. Please make the most of this opportunity!

LRC late openings

Starting this week, the LRC will now be open until 7.00 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

LRC2 will still close at 4.00 pm every day as usual, except for Wednesdays when LRC2 closes at 3.30 pm.

The full details of how to enter can be found here. Reflect on the meaning of the word and create a response in the form of a piece of prose, a quote, a poem, a thought for the day, a drawing, an image, a moving image, a piece of 3D art or a recording that explores its meaning.

Submit your entry to the forum or email Ms Adebajo, PA to the principal, at l.adebajo@sfx.ac.uk for your chance to win a high street voucher! The deadline is Friday, 16th October.

Please note: all entries must be an original piece of work created by the submitting student.

The LRC's 5 Book Challenge

Have you heard about the 5 Book Challenge? Just by reading five books over the course of the school year, you can enter the draw to win a Kindle Fire tablet or a book voucher!

Pick up a reading diary from the LRC front counter and, each time you read a book, write down the details along with a short review (two or three lines) and bring your diary to the LRC to be stamped. Once you have read five books, return the diary to the LRC to enter the draw. You can enter as many times as you like.

Speak to Danielle or Susan in the LRC if you’d like help finding something to read – all books are eligible and you can read novels, non-fiction, poetry, graphic novels, biographies or short stories. We also welcome your requests and suggestions – if we don’t already have a book you want to read, we might be able to purchase a copy for the library. Reading for pleasure is free and an excellent way to combat stress, improve your vocabulary, develop empathy and explore new ideas and parts of the world you might never otherwise encounter.

Happy reading!

Write Online

Check out the new Write Online software that is now available on your desktop. Write Online is a very intuitive piece of text/speech software. It's just like using Word, with the added bonus of being able to hear how your writing sounds - it's great for proofreading, editing and refining your work. Follow this link to see an overview of the software and some short training videos.

Science Book Review

Science students - don't forget the Science Book Review! All science students must get involved. For reading suggestions, check out this list or ask the LRC staff for help.

You can find more information about the book review competition and a place to upload your work here.

Student logins

Initial login problems for students should all now have been resolved. To log in to a PC, Moodle, book a computer or access the college Wi-Fi ('SFXBYOD'), enter your username: this is everything before the @ symbol in your student email address (which can be found on your ID card). Your password is your postcode all in capital letters and with no spaces followed by the number of the day you were born.

A more thorough explanation with examples can be found here.

Local Youth Clubs

Did you know that Wandsworth Council offers youth clubs in the local area for students aged 19 and below? There are all sorts of activities available, from sports to arts and crafts to cooking and more.

Students can also get involved in short courses or workshops such as music making and recording, photography, boxing, crime prevention, and the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

The Gap is a club offered specifically for young LGBTQ people who may wish to meet with similar people in a safe and friendly environment. 

For more information on all clubs and activities offered, you can find the Wandsworth Youth Council's Facebook page here, follow them on Twitter here or visit their website here. Leaftlets providing further information can also be found in the LRC.

FollowMeQueue Printing

There is a new printing system in the college! Instead of choosing a specific printer, you should now select FollowMeQueue. This will send your print job to a cloud, where it will be held for up to 24 hours or until you release it. To release a print job, you will need to swipe your ID card at any one of the printers in the college (just like swiping an Oyster card). If you are in the LRC, you can collect your card from the front or IT counters to do this at any time but please bear in mind that, during busy periods, there may be a queue for the printers - in this instance, you can use another printer in the college. Print jobs will be held for 24 hours, so you can even send your job in the morning and print it off at the end of the day!

Things to note: After you select 'print', a confirmation box will pop up confirming how many print credits you'll be using - you need to click 'OK' before you can release your job. Your print credits will only be taken once you release your print job. You can still cancel your job(s) until then. All printing is double-sided by default - make sure you select 'single-sided' if this is your preference. If you require any assistance, please ask a member of staff or an IT technician.

LRC Food and Drink policy

Food and drink (other than bottled water) are not allowed in the LRC or LRC2 and you must leave any cold food and drink that you have with you at the front counter upon entering either of these spaces. Hot food is not permitted in the LRC at all. We understand that you need sustenance and are happy to hold your place for up to ten minutes while you step outside for a break but any student who is caught with food or drink at their PC or study desk will receive an incident report and be asked to leave for the rest of the day. Students who receive multiple incident reports face longer-term bans.

 Special attention is drawn to the Group Study Room, which has been left a mess of sweet wrappers, crisps, crumbs and fizzy drink spills on several occasions recently. Not only is this against the LRC’s Code of Conduct but it creates an unpleasant working environment for other students. Please work with the LRC staff to help us continue to provide the best possible environment for study.
