The school got originally established as Uva International School in 1992 and four years later in 1996 it became Richland International School. In the year 2000 the present owners of Oxford International College took over the management of the school with the vision of providing quality education based on religious and moral principles while preserving national identity and Sri Lankan culture.
At the time of taking over of the management, there were only about 50 students on roll in the school and the number of teachers about eight. The children were on the move seeking admission to Government schools after completing the preschool education here in this school. To put an end to this process, and to bring the College to the present level. the management had to trudge a dreary way facing numerous challenges. And the concerted effort and the dedication of the management and qualified and experienced teachers brought the classes up to G.C.E. (O/L) within a period of few years.
