Alpha School of English

The language school Alpha School of English was founded in St. Pauls Bay, Malta in 1991. Alpha School of English is conveniently situated just 3 minutes away from the sea in the traditional fishing village of St Paul's Bay. The school is very close to all amenities - banks, post office, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, cinemas etc. It is also the closest school to Malta's sandy beaches which are mainly located in the north of the island. It is on a direct bus route to the capital city of Valletta and the old capital of Medina, as well as to most areas of interest in Malta.

The school address is: Arznell Street, SPB 3232 - St. Pauls Bay, Malta (see on map)
