The Garibaldi School offers a wide range of enrichment opportunities that complement the classroom learning experiences and further supports the development of students as well-rounded individuals.
Most opportunities are department-based. PE and Sports offer a multitude of sporting opportunities including traditional sports such as football, netball and rugby. The department also offers more unusual opportunities such as table tennis, roller skating and parkour. The facilities include a brand new, floodlit, all-weather facility which is also available and used by the community.
The Creative Arts department hold an annual event to showcase work produced in class from Music, Drama and Art but also incorporates students who have taken their interests further and attended lessons with peripatetic music staff or have attended additional theatre workshops.
There are regular visits arranged by other departments to various parts of the United Kingdom to enhance what students learn in class or to open their eyes to other opportunities. Examples of this include field work trips to the coast for Geography; a residential in London with the Science department visiting research facilities, science museums and hospitals; visits to the National Holocaust Centre for History and our annual visit to the Sheffield Institute of Sport, where we transport all students for Sports Day to experience what sport is like in a professional training environment, to name a few.
Our enrichment programme is constantly reviewed and opportunities sought throughout the year to extend our enrichment provision.
