The first and largest of the eight, Leeds International School Panadura, currently has 1900 students of all ages from pre-school to upper secondary. It is divided into a primary and secondary school, with the transition age being 11 years, which occupy different buildings on the same site in Panadura.

British O levels and A levels are sat by students at the end of their Form 5 and Form 7 classes respectively. The A level subjects offered are: accounting, biology, business studies, chemistry, computing, mathematics, further mathematics and physics. The school mainly prepares the students for exams conducted by Edexcel as well as some subjects conducted by University of Cambridge International Examinations. The School was shifted from the city of Panadura to Pinwatta. It is currently situated at Station Road, Pinwatta, Panadura

At present, Leeds has 8 branches across Sri Lanka, with over 4000 students, and the numbers expanding continuously.
