The new schools cricket website

Howzat for a new cricket website! 

Over the past few months, our team have been hard at work preparing an enhanced experience for all users of the school sports portals. Following the successful launch of last month, we're excited to announce that our school cricket portal has now been updated to match the refreshed SOCS branding.

Introducing the "Late" bus option in SOCS Transport

We've added a new feature to our bus scheduling system: the "Late" bus type. Now, in addition to the usual "AM" and "PM" options, users can select the "Late" option for their convenience.

New feature: Co-curricular auto absence emails for parents

We're delighted to announce a new feature for our co-curricular auto absence emails: you can now include "parents" along with housemasters, ensuring parents are kept informed about their child's attendance.

Keep an eye on our newsletter for further updates on unauthorised absence emails.

Integration Update: Wonde session attendance now available!

Wonde Session Attendance, including both AM and PM registers, now seamlessly integrates with SOCS "Out of School." Pupils marked 'absent' on these registers in Wonde can now show with an 'out of school' warning message on SOCS registers, ensuring seamless and efficient club registrations for staff.
