The Belvedere Academy prides itself on its involvement in projects within Liverpool and in educational conversations nationally and globally. This involvement brings knowledge and understanding to academy staff and provides some fantastic opportunities for our pupils.

Julie Taylor, Principal, sits on Liverpool Association of Secondary Heads and is part of Liverpool City Council's Education Priority 1 working party which focuses on ensuring the mental and emotional wellbeing of children and young people so that they are supported so that they can flourish in their education.
