    Southlands College, also known as Southlands Girls, is a Girls' school located in Galle, southern capital of Sri Lanka. Southlands College is situated within the historical Galle fort.

    Southlands College is the premier Girls school in Southern Sri Lanka. It was started during the British rule in 1885. Miss. Lucy Vanderstraaten was the first Principal. The school began in two larger down-stair rooms in a house in Fort with a group of some 50 children. At the beginning it was named “Wesleyan Girls School”.

    Many dedicated Methodist missionary principals and local principals have rendered their valuable service during a period of 118 years to make Southlands one of the best Girls schools in Sri Lanka.
