Football in Malta
Scenic, inspiring and exceptionally safe St. Julians Bay offers the ideal opportunity for students to stimulate their passion for sports outside the UK and beyond the school grounds.
St. Julians Bay occupies an enviable location just over 3 hours flying time from the UK and within a 30 minute coach ride from the International Malta airport as well as all training and fixture sites.
Staff and students can relax with full board in this central accommodation where the weather is very good for the vast majority of the year; we suggest visiting in May Half Term when the weather is warm and there is a large choice of teams to play..
Free-time is taken care of with the provision of superb shopping areas and an array of entertainment options including bowling, karaoke, swimming, quiz nights and disco, all within walking distance of the resort. For a night out the 'Knights Spectacular 1565 dinner show' offers a unique evening of entertainment.
