Welcome to a glimpse of our world through this website.

Ladies’ College, established in 1900 by Christian missionary founders of the Anglican Church, has provided an education to young girls from 3 – 19 years through a strong –

E – Education that is holistic.
T – Thinking both critically and out of the box.
H – Honesty and integrity being core in our value based learning.
O – Others being served in humility, dedication and love.
S – Spiritual foundation of Christianity that is inclusive of diverse faiths, races, communities and abilities.

Being ‘One Family Unbroken’ we are privileged to be able from the ages 9 – 19 years, worship together in our respective faiths and join for weekly School Assemblies under one roof. Unity, respect and kindness through diversity has been a hallmark of our lifestyle where many communities, faiths, differently abled and socially different students are knit together in bonds of friendship and love.

The School is also a hub for varied extra-curricular and co-curricular activities with presently 16 sports (all being on campus except for rowing), the performing arts (music, dance and drama in three languages) and an array of clubs & societies, projects and events. Often from the early hours of the morning to late at night our School is a hive of activity with all our students being encouraged to participate in these numerous opportunities available to each of them to experience, enjoy and grow in wisdom and stature.

Our School is also an oasis in the busy commercial capital city, Colombo, of our country. Surrounded by spaces of fauna, flora, gardens, grounds and our iconic Twin Trees (over a century old), numerous species of birds and insects – it is the platform from which the seeds of stewardship for our environment are sown. Beautiful old buildings intertwined with the modern, our Chapel ‘The Hope of the World’ (the jewel in our crown) and our Main Hall the centre of activities for generations lends to the aura of beauty and privilege we are blessed to have. The Hostel and Day Care, Pool, Sports Complex, grounds and courts, Archives, laboratories, classrooms with smartboards, play areas, Institute of Professional
Studies etc. provide all the necessary support for our students to thrive, excel and be safe.

Our staff (tutorial and others) are committed to better serve our students by constantly sharpening their skills, experience and knowledge. In faith, we endeavor to ensure that the young women who leave our School gates will be upright global citizens who will in humble service contribute significantly to make their world a better place – for we have the firm assurance that ‘our harvests will be garnered by ages yet unknown’.

God bless,
