Getting to school & activities

  • A private EC bus service will take students to and from school and activities. Students will be picked up and dropped off at the EC adult centre in St. Julian's. Parents should ensure that their children are at the adult centre every morning for the bus.

  • The Day Programme can be booked with or without activities. For those students who would like to join activities, a private EC bus service takes students to and from activities. Those students who do not join the activity programme will be dropped off at the EC adult centre after lunch, where they can meet their parents.



All our lunches offer a varied and balanced diet with options and preferences for all students.

Students are offered lunch either whilst out on activity or at the School between Monday to Friday. At school students are offered a variety of either hot or cold lunches depending on the day. The options may include fresh salads, cold pastas, chicken, different bread varieties and more. Whilst out on activity students will be given the option of choosing their own lunch from a number of different internationally branded food outlets as well as some of Malta’s most iconic restaurants and food stalls.  

Packed lunches are usually offered on the weekends

Dietary Requirements

Special dietary requirements may be accommodated subject to availability and a weekly fee.

  • Halal - supplement does not apply
  • Celiac/Gluten intolerance - will be provided at a supplement of €45 per week
  • Lactose intolerance - will be provided at a supplement of €45 per week
  • Vegetarian - supplement does not apply

For special dietary requirements, EC must be informed of this at the time of booking.

Temperatures in Malta during summer are quite high and therefore students, need to drink plenty of water. Whilst water is provided during meals, students will be expected to buy bottled water at other times during activities and school. It is important to take this into account when evaluating the amount of pocket money needed.


  • EC Activity Leaders take care of the students from the time parents drop them off in the morning until they are picked up again later in the afternoon. EC Activity Leaders undergo vigorous in-house training.
  • Parents need to sign-in and sign-out out their children every day. This needs to be done in the morning before the students go for their lessons and in the afternoon when they come back.

Learning centre

St. Martin's/EC Malta

Students attend lessons with other EC students at one of our junior centres in St. Julian's or at St. Martin’s College. All schools provide a safe and comfortable environment which is highly conducive to English language learning.

Course: General English
20 lessons per week (a total of 15 hours)
1 lesson = 45 minutes

The course will help improve English language skills by focusing on the key areas: reading, writing, speaking and listening. A strong focus is placed on speech and using the language confidently and fluently.

Our teachers make the course interesting and fun with lessons planned around topics designed to stimulate young people.

First Day

On the first Monday of the course, students are picked up by the private EC bus from EC’s adult centre in St Julians at 7:15. They will take a placement test in order to assess their level of English language proficiency and to place them in the appropriate class for their level.

Students will receive a Welcome Pack at their accommodation if the address is provided to EC prior to the student's arrival. Otherwise, students will receive their Welcome Pack on the first day of school. The Welcome Pack containing a welcome letter, emergency numbers,timetable, and codes to access a virtual student handbook including useful information and map.

After lunch, students who have booked to attend the activity programme will be taken directly to afternoon activities. Following the afternoon activity, students will be returned by the private EC bus to join their family. 

After school and a hot lunch, students who are not attending activities will be taken back to the EC adult centre.


All students must attend school on a daily basis unless they are genuinely indisposed (due to illness, for example). If the student is ill during school hours, a member of staff will, if required, accompany him/her to the hospital (out-patients).

Educational materials

Course materials are provided; students should bring their own notebook and pen.
