We have named December – ‘Helping Others’ Month

Christmas has always been a time for helping others. SRC has decided to make this official. This December we want to encourage everyone to help each other. Doing the smallest thing for someone else can make a big difference.

Many people aren’t as lucky as we are, not everybody's family can afford to buy them presents or cook a Christmas dinner. Please take a moment this month to consider how you can help someone else to have a happy Christmas! This month please think about the little things you can do to help someone else (but don’t forget to check it out with a parent or tutor – keep yourself safe at all times!).


Make a difference The welfare and youth work team are collecting dry foods and toiletries which will go to local vulnerable people for Christmas. Please donate anything you can to help give someone else a happy Christmas.

The Employability students are supporting this campaign and ran a number of fundraising activities on Wednesday 3rd December.

Thank you to all the staff and students who showed their support. Over £160 was raised on the day.

Breakfast is a very important meal. A good breakfast fuels you up and gets you ready for the day.


In general, teens who eat breakfast have more energy, do better in education, and eat healthier throughout the day. Without breakfast, people can get irritable, restless, and tired. So make time for SRC Breakfast Club!



  • Tea and toast will be served to students each morning, commencing from Monday 10th November from 8.30am till 9am in Oasis cafe.

Budget This Christmas

The college offer an opportunity for students to top up their id cards with money which can be used for food. Using the cashless system at any of our cafes on site can be a great way to treat yourself but also know how many treats you can have. Many of us have money coming to us once a month or once a fortnight by adding to your card you know how much of this money you can spend on food while at college. All id cards offer the chance for learners to visit I&G and add credit to their cards which can be used in Oasis, Riverside or Waterside. This credit does not expire and will be on the card until used at the cafe. It could also be a great way to top up the £2.41 food credit, which is a daily allowance.

If you have any questions about this service speak to I&G.

Student I.D.s

We ask all staff and students to wear their ID in college at all times. This is to ensure college is a safe place, and that we can identify anyone who should not be in student only areas. If you have any concerns about wearing your ID, please speak to your tutor. Staff will ask to see your ID if you aren't wearing it visibly. If you want more information on staying safe in college, text Safe to 81025.

Student Services

The Student Services Team would like to be more accessible to all learners. Therefore members of the team will be in the atrium each day.

You will be able to get information from the Youth workers,Careers and Finance.

A member of staff from Finance will be available from Monday to Friday, 11.30am - 1pm.

Please visit the team if you have any queries.
