More about the GDST

The Belvedere Academy

Aspire Award

The Aspire Award has been developed for Sixth Form students to actively engage in academy life. We encourage a work hard, play hard approach to Sixth Form life! Our students have the opportunity to get involved with an amazing range of activities and experiences that will develop leadership skills, stretch academic progress and improve student wellbeing throughout their Level 3 studies. Our students love getting involved in all the activities we have to offer. Students will become well rounded young people who are independent, confident and will stand out from the crowd when applying for universities or apprenticeships.
