Welcome to SOCS Co-curricular! This guide will help you understand how to log in and sign up for clubs and activities.

How to login

Note: If your school has enabled Single Sign-On, you will be directed to your school's login page (e.g., Microsoft, Google, Firefly). Once you enter your login credentials, you will be logged into SOCS.

How to sign up for activities

After logging in, you can access the list of clubs available to you and sign up for them (if the sign-up window is open).

My Calendar Tab: Click on the "My Calendar" tab to view your SOCS timetable, which includes co-curricular clubs you have joined or signed up for. If your school also uses SOCS Sport, your fixtures will appear in this timetable. You may also be able to view your academic timetable here if the school has set up the synchronization.


Activities Tab: Navigate to the "Activities" tab to see a list of clubs available for sign-up. If the sign-up window is open, you can click "Add" next to the desired clubs to sign up. Once you've successfully added a club, a notice saying "added" will appear next to it. The club will also be visible in your SOCS calendar.

Important Club Information:

Invite Only: Some clubs only allow staff to add pupils, and students cannot sign up directly.

Parental Authorization: Certain clubs require parents to use their parent login to sign up during the designated sign-up window. Students cannot add themselves to these clubs.

Full Capacity: If a club is marked as "Full," it means it has reached its maximum capacity and is no longer available for sign-ups.

Club Preferences: Your school may have set up clubs based on preference. In such cases, you'll need to click "Set Preferences." After the sign-up period ends, the school will try to allocate first-choice clubs to students as much as possible, followed by second choices, and so on. For more details, refer to the help page here.


Updating your password

When you are logged in, you can change your password by clicking on "Settings." Update your password on the My Details & Settings page (refer to the screenshot below).


Syncing the calendar

You can synchronize your SOCS calendar with your personal calendar (e.g., Google or Outlook) to receive live updates about clubs, fixtures, and one-to-one lessons. Any changes made to clubs or fixtures will be automatically updated in your personal calendar.

To sync the calendars:

1. Log into SOCS.
2. Click on the "Calendar Sync" button.
3. Click on the WebCal link generated by SOCS.
4. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the syncing process. This will create a live feed of clubs and fixtures in your personal calendar.


SOCS Web App

If you're accessing the system on a mobile device, you can save it to your phone's home screen as a Web App.

The process of adding the Web App may vary depending on your device and browser. Here are instructions for Android and Apple iOS devices:
