Prospective candidates showing interest in music and having knowledge in the subject can choose to pursue their music studies at two levels after Primary schooling:

a) Pre-Option Music Programme (POMP); or
b) Malta Visual and Performing Arts (MVPA) school

The Directorate for Learning and Assessment Programmes is offering as a pilot project the Pre-Option Music Programme (POMP) in Year 7 and Year 8. Students who are in Year 6 of Primary School and show interest in music can register for this two-year programme, serving as another choice in their educational journey. This programme might not be offered in all Middle Schools.
