Providing a coeducational Sixth Form and Pre-School

A Top Boarding School for the IB Diploma Programme

If you are looking for a top International Baccalaureate boarding school, then look at Europe's secret gem - The St Edward's College in Birgu, Cottonera is only a few minutes from Malta's Capital, Valletta. St Edward's was founded more than 80 years ago, 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 and give the College enough space for expansion when needed. Throughout the years the campus has seen a number of additions, which include the Junior School building and the Kindergarten block. The College has also recently adjusted its facilities to begin accepting boarders from the ages of 11 to 18.

At St Edward's College we strive to provide students with a seamless transition from Junior school up to Sixth Form level. We prepare the boys for O'Level Matsec (local), IGCSE and BTEC (international) O'Level until Year 11 (age 15/16) followed by the 2 year International IB Diploma programme which is recognised by both local and international universities. The College is an English speaking school so all the lessons are in conducted in English.

The College caters for boys at all stages of their studies from Nursery, through to Junior School, Secondary school and finally the International IB programme at Sixth Form level, which is the only stage besides nursery and kindergarten where girls are admitted both as day girls and as boarders. The complement of students is fairly international with local boys as well as many others who are the sons of expats working in North Africa and the Middle East besides other areas like China, Russia and Italy.

St Edward's offers a unique opportunity for parents seeking a boarding school:

  • The school operates on British boarding school principles with high academic standards.
  • The location and environment are superb with year round sunshine on a Mediterranean island.
  • Malta is within 3 hours of any European capital city by air.
  • The IB Diploma is recognised by all top universities.
  • Our fees offer some of the best value of any European boarding schools.
