S. Thomas’ Preparatory School is a private, Anglican, multi-ethnic educational institution for boys, that provides education at both the primary and secondary levels. This prestigious institution that was established on the 17th of May in 1938 by its founding father, William Thomas Keble, is governed by the Anglican Diocese of Colombo, and prides itself on being one of the first preparatory schools initiated within the British public school system here in Sri Lanka.
Our ultimate goal is to produce students who are not only educated and talented but also respectful, responsible and resilient citizens who value diversity and lifelong learning.
The Crest was introduced in 1954 and consists of a young trumpeting tusker, typical of Ceylon, full of life, joy and freedom.
The Lord Is My Shepherd, the motto of our school, was introduced in 1954 and was created under the idea that if he is not the shepherd of our little lambs, then our school has been built in vain.
