The Senior School starts with our Grade 8 students.
The school is built around a number of departments – namely the Sciences (Physics, Chemistry and Biology) and Mathematics, Humanities (History, Geography, Environmental Studies, Religious Studies, Accounts, Economics, PSHE), Languages (Maltese, English, Italian and French), ICT and Technology, Practical Subjects (Physical Education, Drama, Art & Home Economics).
These departments serve the need of students between the ages of 11 and 16.
Physical Education and Sports
Our students participate and achieve very good results in national and inter-school competitions, which are held regularly during the school year. The School also holds table-tennis, football, basketball and handball tournaments during the school day and 2 sports days based on athletics annually.
Students reap the benefits of participating in an activity which aims at enhancing self-esteem and language skills, besides targeting other areas like facing an audience, instilling in our students the love for performing and achieving high standards in other aspects such as movement and music.
Another important initiative is the production of a newsletter called ’The Insider’ which is issued on a term basis. This newsletter not only offers its readers an on-going window to happenings within the school, but also offers a collaborative effort between teachers and students alike
