From the Founding Head


It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Haileybury Malta.  The school itself, opening in September 2024, is in an enviable location with stunning views across the Maltese landscape and to the ancient walled city of Mdina. We will follow a wholly British Curriculum, and in the 6th form it is intended to follow the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. Our sister school, Haileybury UK, will support the Maltese school at all points of the implementation of the project. The IB Programme will allow both our local and international students community greater flexibility in their choice of university and the country in which they wish to study, in addition to the fact that this more broadly based curriculum and examination structure is clearly the way forward in the future. 

English will be the main language throughout the school while individual students having difficulties can be supported personally in class and all students will have the opportunity to have extra English lessons with TEFL support.

As well as academic excellence, Haileybury Malta pupils will learn to manage their own wellbeing and to develop the necessary skills needed in order to lead happy and fulfilling lives. Whilst pastoral support will be an area of particular focus, pupils will also benefit from opportunities to explore their passions and talents outside of the classroom with a rich co-curricular programme on offer.

I very much look forward to welcoming you and your children to Haileybury Malta.
