Girls’ School

The Royal Institute Girls’ School was set up at No. 163, Maya Avenue, Colombo 06, on the 15th of September 2008. This was in response to the growing demand among parents in the international school sector for an international school meant exclusively for girls which delivers excellent quality in academic as well as extra-curricular activities to students through a team of highly motivated and competent staff. The Maya Avenue branch boasts of excellent infrastructure facilities and consists of classes from Lower Nursery up until Ordinary Level.


From Nursery to Grade 2, the school has both, boys and girls. Once the students are promoted to Grade 3, the boys are transferred to the Havelock Town branch – which is a short distance away, while the girls continue their education at the Maya Avenue branch. Thus we ensure that from Grade 3 onwards, the school is exclusively for girls.


Like all other Royal Institute branch schools, the Maya Avenue branch provides high quality education from Nursery to Ordinary Level, and the Cambridge syllabus is followed. Students who wish to sit for the examinations in the National curriculum are taught by an expert panel of teachers with a sound academic background, committed towards providing quality education in English medium.


The school possesses the high-quality facilities including modern classrooms, a computer laboratory, and a library with a resource centre. This institute provides opportunities to its students not only to develop their knowledge but also to develop personality, leadership and life skills as it produces versatile students with knowledge, skills and authentic Sri Lankan values.


Apart from their academic work, students are given the opportunities and encouraged to take part in a wide range of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. These include public speaking programs, English literary circles, scrabble, and aesthetic activities such as art, music and dancing. The dancing troupe, band and choir of the Royal Institute Girls School at Maya Avenue have brought a lot of fame and glory with their outstanding aesthetic skills and talents at various events such as the annual Kala Ulela, Poson Bhakthi gee, Christmas Carols and other functions. As a school with students from various ethnic backgrounds, the Maya Avenue branch encourages religious and cultural harmony through various festivals and programmes including the Sinhala and Tamil New Year, Vesak, Thaipongal, Ramazan, Christmas, etc. The students also engage in several sports activities and such as swimming, karate, badminton, basketball and yoga. The school provides access to all modern sports facilities. The efforts of the dedicated coaching staff have produced fruitful results at various sports events, including the Inter-international School Athletic meet that was organized by the International Schools of Sri Lanka (TISSL).

Butterflies, Little Friends and Girl Guides are vibrant programs that have been in existence at the Maya Avenue branch. Such programs have contributed towards instilling leadership skills to young girls who aspire to become future leaders. Girls at the Maya Avenue branch have excelled not only at exams and sports events but also in social service and community projects such as the flood relief donation campaigns and annual visits to orphanages to donate various essential items to less fortunate fellow brothers and sisters.


At the nursery section of the Maya Avenue branch, we provide an ideal environment for small children with all necessary apparatus and facilities, and AMI-qualified staff. The school has several events and experiences that focus on early childhood development such as water day, activity day, and theme-based days. Further, the children of the nursery section of the school enjoy the music, dancing and drama activities as well as the weekly visits to the Royal Institute Sports Complex at Wijerama Mawatha, Nugegoda for swimming, etc.

We also provide all students with a wide range of opportunities to build their confidence, independence and personality necessary to become well-rounded adults. This is achieved in an atmosphere where each student is protected and supported, but is also allowed to learn from their mistakes.
