The Belvedere Academy Sixth Form offers a wide range of courses in a friendly and supportive setting. There is an open choice of subjects and many students study a mix of Level 3 Vocational and A Level subjects.
Most courses are studied as a two year linear programme, with all external examinations being taken at the end of Year 13. It is important that the ‘assessment information’ is carefully read for each subject - there may be exceptions to the above.
In the Sixth Form, most students will typically choose three A Level or Level 3 Vocational subjects to study. This is generally what universities and employers want. Some students of exceptional ability may still wish to study four subjects and this can be discussed at students’ advisory meetings.
Following recommendations from the government and universities, we insist that the quality of grades is more important than the number of subjects taken. Our success rate in A Level and Level 3 Vocational qualification examinations speaks for itself and last year most of our Year 13 students went to their first choice of university or attained a place on an outstanding apprenticeship programme.
