About Helen O'Grady Malta

Meet The Teachers

The Helen O' Grady Academy is extremely proud of its teachers. Our award-winning curriculum is excellent, so we ensure that we have equally brilliant teachers to implement our programme.

Our selection process for teachers is extremely stringent. We are meticulous when it comes to background screening – including police conduct reports and references from previous employers, as well as qualifications.

All our teachers follow a rigid training programme before final accreditation by the Academy. Because our teaching techniques are constantly developing, training is an on-going process and seminars are held before each term begins to ensure that we are all at the top of our game.

Our teachers are supervised throughout the scholastic year.

We do all this to ensure that our students get the very best! And their parents have peace of mind, knowing that their children are in safe hands.
