The international Helen O'Grady Academy is the only organisation of its kind in Malta offering a unique development programme that really works.

It was originally founded in 1979 in Australia, when a wonderful and visionary woman named Helen O'Grady, a trained teacher, drama teacher and actress, hired a hall and commenced affordable after school drama classes for young people from 3 years to adult.

Performance skills

Helen’s legacy continues today, with over 100,000 students attending dynamic drama classes in 38 countries worldwide.

Our extensive curriculum, designed over the years by experts in their field, as well as our dynamic teachers and easily accessible venues, make this truly community-based organisation, with a strong emphasis on the care of all its students.

Students attend fast-moving classes for one hour a week, according to their specific age-group.

Parents Days and an annual production allow parents and friends to see the progress of the students first-hand.

The Malta branch of the Academy clinched the Franchisee of the Year award 2019 by Ms Helen O'Grady herself during a gala evening attended by the vice-mayor of Cardiff, Wales, UK.
