Launch of the Malta Visual & Performing Arts School

The Malta Visual and Performing Arts School offers young Secondary School students another choice in their educational journey. It falls under the administration of St Thomas More College, but is still to be considered as a national school, much like the National Sports School. It will offer five art forms as the primary focus of study: art, dance, drama, media, music, and will have a yearly intake of 48 students, from across all the national territory, which will be chosen through referrals and auditions.

This relatively new educational institution will give young artists the opportunity to enhance further their artistic nous and rationality by way of consolidating their actual talent levels without renouncing their proficiency in core academic subjects. In fact, The Malta Visual and Performing Arts School aims to move forward along a dual pathway, namely, the artistic as well as the academic one.

In Year 7 and Year 8 each student will have a choice of one primary art form of choice but will also have rotating lessons in the other four art forms spread out over the whole scholastic year. The other traditional subjects will follow the standard curricula. From Year 9 to Year 11, the subsidiary module will drop, and the students will carry on with their preferred art choice.

The Malta Visual and Performing Arts School will now welcome its sixth intake of forty eight (48) students for the scholastic year 2022-2023 in Hamrun.

The setting up of the school was a Ministerial decision based on the electoral promise by the government to enhance the Arts and has been receiving widespread positive feedback from the students, their parents and the artistic community at large.
