Welcome to The Garibaldi School

Welcome to The Garibaldi School. Founded in the 1960s, we have gone from strength-to-strength, innovating education over the years for 11–18-year-olds. With our built-to-last mantra, we strive to offer an engaging educational experience.

Ofsted described the college as being ‘inclusive and caring’ providing students with quality support for those who need it. The best way to judge us is through our achievements.

Welcome to The Garibaldi School website. I hope that you will find it helpful and easy to use. The words ‘pride’, ‘respect’ and ‘achieve’ summarise our vision. We encourage our students to take pride in themselves, the school and their community.

We believe that all members of the school should behave well and show respect for each other. Therefore, when our students leave, they will have achieved well and developed the skills and qualities that they will need for a successful future."

Ryan HawleyHead of School

"The Garibaldi School is committed to providing our young people with the very best start in life. We believe that all young people can and should succeed in school. As a result we have developed a team ethos to make sure that we remove any barriers to learning for every single child. This is embodied in the school motto of ‘Pride, Respect, Achieve.’.

Ofsted recognise that Garibaldi is a good school. As a trust we will support Garibaldi to becoming an outstanding school that the whole community can be proud of.
