In 2007 St Martin's College inaugurated a modern, new Sixth Form in the belief that there was a niche for a high-quality College offering a pre-University education focused on intense teaching in small groups.
The Sixth Form is now a success story, with tailored guidance offered to students who are encouraged to choose a combination of subjects that best suits their personal abilities and ambitions. Individual attention is guaranteed as groups are kept small.
While the majority of students follow the MATSEC certification course which prepares students for entry to the University of Malta, as well as enabling them to apply for universities abroad, they are also allowed to select combinations of subjects depending on the institution of higher education they might be hoping to join. St Martin's College is registered with UCAS, so that students may apply online to UK universities through the college. The progress of each application can then be monitored through its various stages.
Apart from the academic programme, students are encouraged to participate in a number of activities such as Young Enterprise, the 'Speak your Mind' competition and EuroScola, and are expected to participate in 50 hours of community work. These activities are an integral component of the St Martin's College Sixth Form programme.
Why St Martin's College?
With a strong track-record at Junior/Middle and Senior school levels, St Martin's College is the obvious choice for students who have been in the Independent Sector throughout their schooling. It is also an excellent choice for students who have been in the State/Church School Sector and who wish to experience the standards and innovative practices at St Martin's College. Our greatest strength lies in the excellent quality of our staff and in the caring approach that ensures that the students at Sixth Form level will get individualised attention. The courses being proposed offer students a variety of subject combinations which will allow entry into practically all courses at the University of Malta. The English-speaking environment allows students to perfect their speaking and listening skills in this essential, global language.
The Sixth Form programme runs on a 3-term, 5-day week schedule. The programme starts in October and ends In June, with Christmas, Easter and mid-term holidays.
Each lecture is of a 40 minutes duration. Most lectures are double lectures. In addition sports activities, drama productions and community work also take place. Lectures start at 8:30am and end by 4:20pm for most students. Students are expected to attend all lectures and activities that form part of their academic programme.
There is NO uniform at Sixth Form level however, students are expected to come to College appropriately dressed.
Students at St Martin's College Sixth Form are eligible to apply for their Maintenance Grant (Stipend) in the same way as students attending other Sixth Forms.
