CEO's Message

I am both honoured and humbled to head a community of warm and friendly teachers, who not only offer the highest standards of education but have consistently delivered results over the past decade. Having developed a reputation for quality standards over the past 10 years, I wish to uphold this same standard for the years to come as well, in catering to our 3000+ students who hail from various walks of life. Upon stepping into our next decade of service excellence, I am confident that this is what will enable us to accomplish our vision of becoming a benchmark for educational institutes, within whole of Asia.

Our combination of running small classes by experienced teachers, within a unique learning environment through the adoption of innovative techniques has rendered outstanding academic results for our students over the years. From Prep all the way through to Level 10, we enable our students to grow and develop through their preferred learning styles. Thereby our focus has always been to ‘mine’ the unique strengths and abilities of each student and direct them towards the pathway that’s most suitable for them.

This is what has enabled us to earn the trust of many prospective parents who value our small class sizing, which affirms that extra attention and care for their child’s holistic development.

Principal's Message

It gives me great pleasure to see the results we have delivered over the past decade. This is as a result of the dedication and commitment displayed by our talented cadre of teachers who tirelessly work to give added value to your child’s English learning experience.

From internationally acclaimed certifications from the University of Cambridge UK, to offering Cambridge ESOL examinations, we continue to uphold the name as one of the best ESOL trainers in Sri Lanka. All examinations are administrated by the British Council and we take great care in teaching and developing the skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking, to ensure best results.

The happy smiles on our students’ faces and their subsequent results give us great satisfaction in continuing to maintain our unique ‘activity based’ teaching method. And our hope and aspiration is to further expand our scope to reach a wider audience irrespective of social boundaries; one that we are committed to accomplish in the near future.
