De La Salle College is a Catholic school run by the Malta Trust of the Brothers of the Christian Schools (De La Salle Brothers). The International De La Salle Order was founded in France by St John Baptist De La Salle in 1684 and which was subsequently established in Malta in 1903.
The College comprises 3 sections: the primary, secondary and sixth form section that comprises students of between 16 and 18 years of age who are studying to obtain their qualifications in order to be able to enter university.
The section of the school involved in the project is the Sixth Form. There are 300 students in all in the sixth form. Each student studies a total of 6 subjects. One must be a science subject, another a language and another a humanities subject. A subject that deals with democracy and citizenship, the environment and science, called Systems of Knowledge is a compulsory subject for all students. There are 35 fulltime staff members.
The Sixth Form has been involved in Erasmus plus projects – both KA1 and KA2. – for the last 3 years.
At De La Salle Sixth Form students are inspired to achieve academic excellence and personal success and are actively supported to reach their full academic potential. The Sixth Form is for students who want to do well. It offers many opportunities, not only to pass exams and gain important qualifications but also to be part of an environment in which students can mature and realise their career targets. We strive to provide a stimulating and safe environment to bring out the best in all our students. We also welcome innovation and are unafraid to tackle the challenges of education in this new century. Ours is indeed an exciting school where every person is valued and provided with the opportunity to excel.
