Text Books and Materials
If you are intending to enrol for a course that may require text books or other materials, please do not purchase these items until you are sure that the course will commence. Confirmation will be available the week prior to beginning of each term by telephoning 020 8772 6060.
Courses will only be cancelled as a very last resort. However, this is sometimes unavoidable, owing to low student recruitment. It is helpful to the College if course fees are paid as early as possible.
If a place should exist on a course after it has started, you are still welcome to enrol. However, the course fee will only be reduced after the College half term holiday, half way into the term. All course fees will then be halved (the £10 administration fee remains payable).
Please telephone 020 8772 6060 to confirm that a place is still available.
When a course becomes full, we will be pleased to add your name to a waiting list at your request. In the event that a place becomes available it will be filled with the first reserve on this list. If there is sufficient demand for one particular course, we may be able to offer an additional class.
There are suitable facilities including a lift providing access to all floors in St Francis Xavier College, for those with restricted mobility.
We support people with a disability or learning difficulty, such as visual impairment, hearing impairment, mental health difficulty, learning difficulty such as dyslexia and mobility difficulties. Please let us know if you have any support requirements or if we can make adjustments to help you. For example, change a room to make access easier, adapt learning materials to suit your needs (e.g. large print), or provide specialist software for computers assisted learning programmes.
For more information, please ask for your copy of our ‘support leaflet’ by phoning us on 020 8772 6060. If you would like to discuss your support needsin a confidential setting, please contact Eleanor Lewis on 020 8772 6060. We want you to be successful and enjoy your course.
St Francis Xavier College has a ‘no smoking’ policy on site. If you wish to smoke you will need to leave the College premises, not just the College building. We thank you for your cooperation.
Code of Conduct
Everyone will be issued with a code of conduct, which they are asked to adhere to, covering health and safety and domestic issues at the start of each term.
Comments or Complaints and Feedback
We value feedback from all our learners and in the case of particular concern a copy of our formal complaints procedure is available from our reception in SFX or the website. At the end of your course you will be asked to complete an evaluation form which you can return to, or even discuss with, your tutor. Of course we understand that you may prefer to return it anonymously, in which case you may deliver it to our box on reception or through the post.
We welcome the comments and suggestions made on these feedback forms. However, sometimes things go wrong or problems occur that can and should be resolved or dealt with straight away if we know about them. Please, therefore, feel free to bring comment, ideas or suggestions to our attention at any time during your learning at SFX. We are committed to providing a high standard of learning in appropriate accommodation but can only achieve this with your honest help.
Free parking is available in the St Francis Xavier College car park during evening classes ONLY. We regret there are no facilities during the daytime.
Parking is at your own risk.
There is a bicycle shed located on the side road at the right hand side of the main College building. You may park your bicycle here at your own risk for evening and daytime classes. Please do not use the trees at the front of the College building or anywhere on the campus to chain bicycles to. Bicycles left in this manner will be removed.
There are two bays designated for disabled parking at the front of the building. Please only use these bays if you have a mobility difficulty.
We regret we are unable to take any responsibility for student possessions or valuables brought onto the premises. Anything brought onto the premises is done so entirely at the own risk of the individual.
