More about the GDST

The Belvedere Academy

Life skills in Sixth Form

Life Skills has dedicated sessions or days allocated to it throughout the academic year and is a fundamental part of preparing our students for life after Belvedere. Through these sessions we aim to support the development of our students so that they are fully equipped and confident to tackle the challenges that life in the wider world may bring. Recent sessions have covered the following topics:

- Health and Wellbeing Sex and Relationships - Brook

- Drugs and Alcohol - Addaction

- Self Defence - Resolve-It

- First Aid - St John Ambulance

Life skills sessions are delivered through a combination of teacher-led sessions and talks from external speakers who bring with them the expertise and experience to give students a wider perspective to certain topic areas. Regular feedback sessions are held with the students to ensure that the areas we cover in Life Skills are of interest and relevance to them, and delivered in an appropriate and engaging way.
