The Langlands School and College, Chitral (formerly known as Sayurj Public School) is a leading private school in the remote and beautiful Chitral district of northern Pakistan. Since 1988 it has been providing the children and young people of Chitral with a first rate academic education.

It now educates about one thousand students, a third of them girls. The students range in age from 4 to 18 years of age.

The school is named after the legendary Major Geoffrey Langlands who ran the school for twenty-four years, from 1989 to 2013, building it up to its present size and establishing its national reputation.

In 2013 Carey Schofield arrived from London to take over from Major Langlands as principal.
