Welcome to Trinity's Malta Centre.

Trinity College London has been represented in Malta since 1967 and has been growing ever since. Until 1980 there was only one exam session held in May/June. However, numbers were increasing and it was decided to have another session in November/December.

At that time it was still Trinity College of Music. It's worth noting here that the founder of Trinity College of Music was a Maltese composer, Henry George Bonavia Hunt Mus.D. He was born in Malta on 30 July 1847. When Henry George grew up he made music his life interest, founding the Trinity College in 1872. He initiated the scheme of local exams now adopted universally. As the founder of Trinity College Henry George Bonavia Hunt became one of the few Maltese who earned an outstanding reputation for themselves and who contributed to the spread of music and culture.

For Music, there is one centre and one representative who also caters for the sister island of Gozo, 25 minutes away by ferry. In Gozo Sr. Cecilia Vella is in charge and helps to keep the representative in constant contact with Gozitan teachers and candidates.

For Speech and Drama, Masquerade is the official Malta centre. The vast syllabus incorporates 150 years of experience of Trinity exams. The centre offers an integrated framework to support and encourage the most imaginative learning, teaching and participation in the widest range of performance and communication skills.


All Trinity exams are fully recognised by the Malta Qualifications Council within the Malta Qualifications Framework.
