SSLSD is an approved educational institute by The Supreme Education Council and is known as the Sri Lankan Community School. The school is also an Approved Exmination Centre by Edexcel International (UK) which grants students to sit for Edexcel IGCSE and GCE examinations. At the beginning, the school was a nursery with 25 students and over the years it has vastly progressed.
SSLSD now offers education from Lower Reception to Advanced Level. The school follows the Edexcel Curriculum. Students in Year 2 & Year 6 sit for the Key Stage I & II (SAT) examinations administered by Edexcel U.K. 
SSLSD follows the London Edexcel Curriculum. Emphasis is given to activity based and project based learning. All these curricular and co-curricular activities direct towards the total development of the student's personality to suit the international community.
The assessment system includes both internal and external assessments. Students are assessed internally through monthly and semester examinations, continuous homework and class assessments while they are also externally assessed through Key Stage Examinations conducted by SAT and IGCSE and GCSE examinations conducted by Edexcel International.
SSLSD believes that continuous assessment is the key to sharpen the knowledge of the students. The internally assessed examinations are conducted with high standard in accordance to the British examination procedures. As the gravity of these exams gradually increase from lower to upper classes, the students are very well guided towards the public examinations. The following examinations are available at SSLSD:
- Monthly / Weekly Assessments
- Semester Exams
- Key Stage 1 Exams
- Key Stage 2 Exams
- Cambridge ESOL Exams
- "My Language" Exams
- Mock IGCSE Exams
