School Opening Hours

The school is closed on all public holidays in Malta. See list above for details.

During weeks that include a Public Holiday, morning lessons are extended by 30 minutes each day in order to compensate for missed lessons. The morning lesson time-table is therefore as follows:
09.00h – 11.00h
11.30h – 13.00h

During weeks that include a Public Holiday, Intensive lessons are also 30 minutes longer for 3 days of the week. The Intensive lesson time-table is therefore as follows:
13.30h – 15.30h (3 days of the week)
13.30h – 15.00h (4th day)

Course Availability: Courses are available all year round unless otherwise specified except for our annual 2 weeks shutdown at the end of December each year. See our  terms and conditions for the actual dates.
