Sagħtar is a Maltese magazine published by MUT Publications Ltd. It is published monthly, but only during the scholastic year, and is intended mainly for use within Maltese primary and secondary schools. Its content ranges from information regarding current local and international topics, to Maltese literature segments.

Many Maltese schools use Sagħtar as part of a Maltese lesson. Indeed it is used both to encourage students to read Maltese, and to teach students about certain topics which may be featured in that particular edition.

Sagħtar was first published in 1970, having been started by the "Moviment Qawmien Letterarju". As of 2015 it continues to be published, in full colour, by the Malta Union of Teachers.

In Maltese Sagħtar refers to wild thyme, and also to Striated Pardalote.
