The National Sport School

Introducing the National Sport School, Malta

Malta’s first school dedicated to sporting excellence was set up in September 2012. A recognized National Centre of Excellence, fully supported by the Maltese Government, the National Sport School is leading the way in providing opportunities for young people in Malta to develop their sporting talents as part of their schooling.

It is housed in Pembroke, adjacent to the Luxol St. Andrews Stadium. The National Sport School is a co-educational school for students who are gifted athletes.

The average population is of 240 students aged between 11 and 16. The school offers expert coaching in a wide variety of sporting disciplines. 

Students follow a balanced curriculum of academic studies together with their sports specialization. Their coaching is carefully timetabled around their academic subjects during the school day. Great care is taken to provide students with every opportunity to maximize not only their sporting but also their academic potential.

Entry is by selection only. Care is taken to ensure that our high standards are not compromised  thus there is a focus on identifying individuals who are both gifted and committed.
