If you are looking for a top Sixth Form offering the IB Diploma programme, then look no further - St Edward's College in Birgu, Cottonera is only a few minutes from Malta's Capital, Valletta. St Edward's was established in 1929, basing itself on British Public School ideals, to fill the void left in the Maltese education system by the departure of the English Jesuits.

The College site originally served as a Military Hospital and has extensive grounds between the bastion walls and the old hospital buildings, which serve as ideal recreational areas. St Edward's College was authorised to offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) commencing September 2009 and following successful years, applications for boarders and day students have been increasing.

Between the age of 16 and 18 we offer the 2-year International IB Diploma programme which is recognised by both local and international universities. The IB was designed to meet the needs of these students to ensure that they can effortlessly integrate into different International Schools when the need arises.

After carefully looking at the options available to Maltese students we reached a conclusion that the IB Diploma would also be their best option.

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) aims to do more than other curricula by developing inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who are motivated to succeed.

The College is an English speaking school so all the lessons are in conducted in English.
