Project Details

A charity school set up in Colombo to help Sri Lankans gain vital English skills to have a competitive advantage in the jobs market.


The SVS School for English was set up in 2006 with the aim of enabling Sri Lankans and expatriates living in Sri Lanka to develop vital, empowering English language skills to develop their confidence, to widen access to an international job market, and support them in becoming successful global citizens.

A registered charity, the English school was set up and is run by Sebastian Lawrance, a British expatriate who has called Sri Lanka home for over 20 years.

When you’re part of SVS School for English, you’re part of a family. The English school in Colombo is run according to family values, creating a close-knit, homely environment where students feel safe and supported as they build their English language skills. Students and teachers work together in class towards our vision of giving people across Sri Lanka the chance to develop their knowledge of English, the global link language.

Our mission is to provide the highest quality, affordable English language courses and training for any student who wants to learn and improve their English language skills.

We firmly believe in giving every student equal access to this important global link language, so they can develop their knowledge of English through our English classes in Colombo.

The SVS School for English conducts English courses from basic English (Elementary) to advanced English classes (Upper Intermediate & Skills courses). All English classes, regardless of the level, focus on a balanced combination of written and spoken English, so that students gain a natural fluency in the English language. Small class sizes teaching both written English and spoken English ensure students receive individual attention to help them achieve their goals.

Social Impact

Many students that have studied at the SVS School for English have gone on to achieve things, they say, they wouldn't have been able to if not for the school:

  • Some have secured places in British and American universities. 
  • Some have gone on to get promotions in their companies that they might not have achieved without a good command of the English language.
  • Some have secured jobs with international companies allowing them to earn a higher wage for their families.
  • Some have just been able to make friends with people from different backgrounds.
