Student Life

"Students respect and like their teachers. They behave well in lessons and around the college. They receive help from specially trained staff if they experience difficulties with their mental health, in studying or in their personal lives."

- Ofsted 2019

Thinking about joining us?

As a student at SHC, not only will you be surrounded by numerous members of supportive staff and friendly peers, you’ll also have access to our wide range of facilities, such as our brand new Maths and English (ME) hub, created to help our students achieve their goals, by giving them all the tuition and catch-up classes they could possibly need.
Other facilities include the study space, the learning resource centre, the study store, the common room and the canteen, all of which are catered to help you grow and develop both academically and personally as a young adult.

A Day in the life 

So what is a typical day as a SHC student like?

Our timetables vary each year and very much depend on the course you are studying. Once you enrol with us and receive your timetable, you may find that there are days that you start later or finish early - you may even have a day off! 

We place a large focus on gearing you up for independence, so we make sure we give you plenty of opportunities for directed study time so that you begin to learn how to focus and spend you time wisely. This is a key skill to learn whether your planning on going to university or employment after your studies with us.

Please note that this information is correct at the time of writing (October 2019), and may change by the time you enrol with us.

Virtual Learning


Pro-Portal is our gateway to see your academic profile; from here you can see your attendance, past grades, mock results and predicted grades for the future. Reports and personal statements for university are also kept here.

Most importantly, it gives you quick access to your timetables and allows you to communicate with staff.


We are proud to be in partnership with Unifrog, their amazing platform helps students find and compare university courses, apprenticeships and more. Our teachers and careers advisors will monitor your choices and applications to ensure the best outcome possible.


Here at Shooters Hill Sixth Form we have dozens of different enrichment courses that you can take up alongside your academic studies. You can choose anything from dance to table tennis to swimming.
Don't like any of the enrichments we have on offer? You can start your own! All you need is commitment, and a group of people to ensure it runs at least once a week for any students who are interested. 

Alumni Association 

Alumni Association

Shooters Hill Sixth Form College will soon be relaunching our Alumni association to enable our past students to re-engage with the college, update us on their achievements and enable us to be able to invite them to attend events at the college.

As a member of the Alumni association you will be invited to performances and public events that the college hosts throughout the year, have the opportunity to come back and share your experiences with our existing students and take advantage of the networking opportunities that this will create for you. 

If you are an alumni or know anyone that is, you can contact us at to let us know what you are doing and how you have progressed since leaving Shooters Hill Sixth Form College. We will then add you to our mailing list so we can keep you informed of developments and send out invites to our events. 

   "During my time at Shooters Hill I studied A-Levels; A-Levels at Shooters Hill was a great experience, I felt fully supported and challenged academically by all of my teachers. Having studied at Shooters Hill, I felt fully equipped to be able to move onto University with ease."
