Verdala International School was founded in 1976 as a day school to serve the children of expatriate families living in Malta. In 1985 it reconstituted as a non-profit foundation, currently operating as The Verdala International School Foundation. The school moved with 110 students to its current site at Fort Pembroke in 1987, and it has since grown to have over 500 students, leading to it acquiring additional buildings in the area.
