Senior School

Finding Your Subject

We are very much looking forward to our inaugural cohort of Year 9 & 10 pupils embarking on their journey with us starting September 2024! While the Senior School gears up for the challenges of IGCSEs, we believe the preceding years are just as crucial, laying a sturdy groundwork for pupils to delve into their passions and strengths in greater depth. Building upon the core curriculum from the Lower School, pupils are encouraged to chart their academic path with more ambitious choices in languages and the creative arts program.

As they progress to IGCSE level, pupils are guided by subject specialists who ignite their curiosity and inspire academic exploration. With English, Maths, and Science as compulsory subjects forming the bedrock of their education, students are empowered to tailor their studies with ‘options’ from a diverse range of additional subjects, nurturing their interests and talents.

Looking ahead, our eldest pupils will embark on the prestigious journey of the International Baccalaureate diploma, a globally acclaimed qualification highly regarded by top universities worldwide. At Haileybury Malta, we’re not just shaping students; we’re sculpting future leaders and thinkers, equipping them with the skills and knowledge they need in order to lead happy and fulfilling lives.

Finding Joy

Within our core curriculum, we maintain a steadfast commitment to stability while acknowledging the diverse interests and aspirations of our pupils. At this pivotal stage in their educational journey, pupils are afforded the opportunity to explore their unique passions and chart a course that reflects their individuality, fostering a sense of joy and fulfilment.

For some, this may entail a deep dive into the intricate world of language acquisition, where the study of multiple languages offers a gateway to cultural understanding and global connectivity. The pursuit of language proficiency broadens horizons and fosters cross-cultural dialogue.

Similarly, the realm of artistic expression beckons, inviting pupils to immerse themselves in the creative process and discover the transformative power of visual and tactile mediums. From painting and sculpture to mixed media and digital design, the exploration of artistry ignites the imagination and nurtures self-expression.

In addition, the world of music transcends cultural boundaries to evoke emotion and stir the soul. Whether through classical compositions, jazz improvisations, or contemporary arrangements, the study of music enriches the human experience and cultivates an appreciation for the universal language of sound.

Furthermore, the dramatic arts provide a platform for pupils to inhabit characters, explore narratives, and engage with the complexities of the human condition. Through theatrical performances and storytelling, pupils develop empathy, communication skills, and a deeper understanding of societal dynamics.

Beyond the confines of the classroom, the realm of physical activity and outdoor exploration offers avenues for personal growth and holistic development. Engaging in sports, recreational activities, and outdoor pursuits fosters resilience, teamwork, and a connection to the natural world.

In embracing these diverse opportunities for intellectual, creative, and physical engagement, pupils at Haileybury Malta embark on a journey of self-discovery and personal enrichment.
