About Us

SVS School for English was set up in 2006 with a vision of giving people across Sri Lanka the chance to develop their knowledge of English, an important global language

A registered charity, the school’s mission is to provide the highest quality, affordable English language training for anyone who wants to learn and improve their English language skills

Teachers volunteer their time in 6 month stints, and are provided with food, accommodation and a monthly stipend, in addition to the unbeatable fulfillment they get from helping a wide range of students (from Burmese monks to Sri Lankan college students) develop their knowledge and scope of the world

In the 10 years since its inception, our volunteer teachers have made a difference to thousands of students’ lives. We’re always looking for more inspiring individuals to join our team. So get in touch, and let’s have a chat
