Chairman’s Message

 I wish you a warm welcome to Leeds International School. From our humble beginning in the leased premises of 105, Arthur V Dias Mawatha, Panadura in September 1999, we have travelled a long journey, strong and united in the face of manifold challenges and hardships.

As an old Chinese Proverb goes “THE JOURNEY OF A THOUSAND MILES BEGINS WITH A SINGLE STEP” over the years step by step and brick by brick, we have reached the present heights. Today we have expanded our network to 10 branch schools in several main cities in the Western and Southern provinces.


Leeds has been providing education for over 18 years to over 5000 students following both London and National curriculums.

The Nursery section caters to students of the age range of 2 1/2 – 5 years. Classes are conducted from Grade 1 to 13 serving the 5 -18 years age groups. The school prepares students mainly for Pearson Edexcel IGCSE and IAL Examinations. For those who wish to follow the national syllabus in the English medium, provision is made from Grade 8 up to A Levels.

As per our motto “Strive for Excellence”, the school maintains and continually develops high standards in academics and discipline.

The well equipped Science and Computer Laboratories, Library facilities and multimedia based activity rooms provide adequate support for the learning-teaching process and prepare our students to be equipped with the skills needed for future. Continuous dialogue with parents, common mid and term examinations for all 14 schools and ongoing student evaluations and support help to maintain standards.

The school campuses are spacious and well maintained. A pleasant, friendly atmosphere makes school a happy and enjoyable experience for students. It is, total personality development that the school aims at, in preparing students to meet challenges in life with confidence.

A wide range of co-curricular activities are made available for balanced personality development. Rich learning experiences are provided by the educational and field trips, clubs & societies, community service projects, activity days, annual concerts, drama and the celebration of religious and cultural festivals.

Students are encouraged to take part in sports, and facilities are provided for swimming, cricket, badminton, karate, netball, chess, scrabble, athletics, etc. Athletics, Karate and Chess has become very popular among students, winning medals even at International level. The Drama Club of Leeds produced the dramas ‘Oliver’ in September 2009 and ‘Rats’ in January 2011 under the direction of Mr. Jerome L. de Silva. Numerous opportunities are provided for students to develop leadership skills.

In keeping with the multi-ethnic and multi-cultural nature of the country, students of different nationalities and religions, study together in friendship, learning to understand and appreciate each other’s culture and religions.

Leeds provides opportunities for students to have a well balanced education in the English medium with Religion, Culture and Values as the firm foundation.
