Adjacent to the Negombo lagoon and boasting of its own eco-friendly charm, Gateway College Negombo was established in 2007 and is recognised today as the leading international school in the North of Colombo.

Over 900 students receive holistic education from a dynamic teaching staff in an environment equipped with modern facilities. Gateway College Negombo is truly a school of opportunities with windows open to the outside world.


Mrs Devika Alldis -  Principal, Gateway College Negombo 

“When hundreds of millions of students in the world are currently challenged to learn solely online, the pandemic has made the educators rethink solutions, and systems in teaching and learning. We have braved the present to create a learning environment where students are inspired to learn for themselves, with progressive, reconstructionist opportunities, and tools that support to build learning skills to engage with others, in education for social responsibility.”

Mrs Devika Alldis’ career in education spans over 37 years in government and international schools. She has taught English, English Literature, and Western Classical Civilisation at both International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) and GCE Advanced Level. Additionally, she has been a teacher trainer, examination officer, and a visiting university lecturer. In 2008, she was appointed Headmistress of Gateway College Negombo. Her dynamism and energy have contributed greatly to the rapid progress of the establishment and her ability to hold the entire school community together, as a family, has been the hallmark of her success.

Mrs Alldis holds a BA in English Language and Literature, from the University of Sri Jayewardenepura and an MA in Linguistics from the University of Kelaniya, Sri Lanka. She was professionally trained at the Teacher Training College, Peradeniya and received her TEFL qualification from the University of Toronto.
