The ongoing issues with the schools timetabling and room
booking system have caused chaos for our societies and students more generally.
Whilst we hope that the system will soon be implemented, in the meantime we are
determined to manage the situation as best we can and to secure the best
possible outcome for our students.
At this point, we have received assurances from the school
that the situation with timetabling has been resolved. We have also been
assured that the issue will not arise again with the selection of Lent Term
half units. If any student is still experiencing problems with their timetable
please contact us at email@example.com
Due to the ongoing nature of the issues with Room-Bookings,
we have been in continuous communication with the school. In addition, our
Education Officer Jon Foster has been invited to join the schools Room-Booking
and Timetables System project board, and will remain a member of the project
board until the issue is resolved. This will enable us to stay up to date with
the latest developments and we will pass on any new information at the earliest opportunity.
We are continuing to push the school for adequate
compensation for students and societies in the aftermath of the room-bookings
situation. We have also been seeking strong assurances from the school that the
problems with timetabling will not affect the release of this year’s Exam
Timetable – we have been lobbying and will continue to lobby the school to
deliver a much earlier exam timetable, which will be of benefit to all
students. We hope to have more to announce on this in the near future.

Two years ago LSE Hockey was a standard sports club. Both the Men’s & Women’s teams trained together, taking half a pitch each at Mile End, but sporting performance very much took a backseat to socials and that season resulted in both the Men’s & Women’s first teams being relegated. What happened next was nothing short of extraordinary.
Under a new exec, the club’s fortunes transformed. The new first team captains placed a big emphasis on sporting performance, making sure that training sessions were well attended, coaches were employed and that players were continually improving.
The results were clear to see with the Women’s 1st team having an unbeaten season, winning both the league and the cup, and the Men’s 1st team going unbeaten in the league scoring over sixty goals in ten matches.
Their innovative approach to LSE sport did not stop there: the team club organised a Hockey Development Tour to Amsterdam with the support of the LSE Annual Fund. This trip provided an opportunity for the teams to have a full-on hockey experience that most would have never thought possible. They trained or played matches for close to eighteen hours over the three days, with more staying behind during lunch hours for extra coaching. The trip didn’t just bring everyone closer together, but also improved the hockey playing ability of every single member of the 32 strong squad.
Mixing it up
Despite technically having a separate Men’s & Women’s club, Hockey operates as a single entity both with their vision on both the sport and social side. The jewel in the crown of Hockey’s achievements is the Mixed team. Created in 2013 by then team captain Charlie Wood, what started off as a “let’s see how this goes” turned into a Sunday staple for the club. As of writing, the Mixed team are two years unbeaten in the LUSL Premier League, a feat that won them the LSESU Team of the Year award at last year’s AU Ball.
Going on to win both Club & Team Of The Year in the 2015 SU STARS Awards is testament to the transformation the club has undertaken, and LSE Hockey are now at the forefront of LSE Sport. Their approach to both sporting performance and inclusivity embody everything that the AU for All campaign is aiming for. The Men’s club have expanded to now have three teams, thus catering for all abilities, and the Women’s club continue to run a very strong beginner programme ensuring that people can really give hockey a go.
