Hartley College (Tamil: ஹாட்லிக் கல்லூரி Hāṭlik Kallūri) is a provincial school in Point Pedro, Sri Lanka.[1][2] Founded in 1838 by British Methodist missionaries, it is one of Sri Lanka's oldest schools. The school is named after Wesleyan priest and missionary Rev. Hartley.

History[edit]

Methodist missionaries from Britain arrived in Ceylon on 29 June 1814. The Wesleyan Mission Central School was founded in 1838 by Rev. Dr. Peter Percival.[3][4] The school is located at the current location of the Methodist Girls' High School. The school transferred to its current site in 1874.[3] The school was renamed Christ Church School in 1912 and Hartley College in 1916.[3][4]

Most private schools in Ceylon were taken over by the government in 1960. Hartley College becomes a publicly funded school on 1 December 1960.[4]

Following arson by the Sri Lankan government forces in 1984 , the school moved to Puttalai from 1985 to 1990.[3] In 1989, the school appeared on a postage stamp issued to commemorate its 150th anniversary.[3] From 1996 to 2002, part of the school was occupied by the Sri Lanka Army, and the school remains in a high security zone.[5] In 2005, part of the school was destroyed by a grenade thrown from a motorcycle.[6]
