The Story of Sherwood High


On the cusp of its 13th anniversary, we are well and truly the Sherwood High Community today. Let us give you a glimpse of our story so far.

A decade ago, Sherwood High was established with a simple vision of creating a school that focussed on the idea of a community that was Indian at heart, before it was anything else. It is towards this idea, that the school has blossomed into what it is today – a home away from home for its students, as well as for those, who shape the minds of our learners within its portals.

Identified amongst the best schools in South Bangalore, Sherwood High’s philosophy of ‘Education by Inspiration’ has driven us to create a community that remains rooted to its traditions and culture while also imbibing universal values to become responsible citizens of tomorrow.

“So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable” – Christopher Reeve.

The vision of the Board Members of the Emmar Charitable Trust (Regd.), has always been to create an alma mater that learners, parents and educators would be proud to be associated with. Each day, the focus is not only on achieving academic excellence in an encouraging environment but also ensuring the overall development of a child’s personality. Living true to the School’s motto, Learn. Lead. Succeed., our learners are encouraged to explore diverse interests, master their inclinations and share their dexterity for their personal growth as well as the welfare of those around them, all while keeping in mind values of compassion and empathy.

Learning at Sherwood High is the culmination of several bits of intelligence. Here is a school that believes in providing the best academic infrastructure and environment to hone young minds and give their formative years the right direction. The attention to detail is visible in every aspect of the classrooms and the campus. All the staff, teaching and non-teaching come together seamlessly to create a learning experience, unlike any other.

A true proponent of equal opportunities, free-ships and scholarships are an integral part of the education system at Sherwood High. We have always believed that the nurturing of every child and their potential should be on an equal platform, irrespective of stature.

When you interact with our teachers, you will instantly feel the spirit of dedication that they operate with. They are often known to go above and beyond for their students. Always with a keen eye to recognize budding talent, our educators form the very foundation of Sherwood High’s strong bonding with its students, while they are with us, and even once they graduate.

The Sherwood High Logo

The Sherwood High school emblem embodies our identity. The ‘Tree of Life’ is symbolic of how all beings on this earth are interconnected. No one being can remain independent of the other. The tree also indicates the seamless education system that Sherwood High has created – one that nurtures while disseminating knowledge. Creativity and discipline are depicted in the colors beige and blue, also the colours of the school. And the Earth symbolizes the well-rounded educational environment that the Sherwood High community is known for. It also gives you a glimpse of the world that our students will inherit and lead in the future.

The Sherwood High Vision

This, the school believes, is the hallmark of the leaders of tomorrow – all of whom approach their duties and responsibilities, personal and to society, without any discrimination. Everyone at the school works in tandem with one another to ensure that this belief is fostered among the students as they grow and learn through a campus built for excellence, with its well-trained faculty working on a curriculum which aims at holistic personality development, by providing the right learning environment for our learners.

Spread over 5 acres of land, Sherwood High provides a campus and infrastructure that is quintessential to the holistic growth of a child. Be it academics or extra-curricular activities, the school will constantly upgrade itself to provide the best for its students.

With its handpicked faculty

Students deserve to have a hand that nurtures them. Teaching is an avocation for our faculty. We believe in working with teachers who are experts in their fields and who anticipate the needs of children. Their expertise will be a constant source of confidence to the children they teach.

Through grounded personality development

At Sherwood High the aim is to help students reach their full potential. Developing dimensions of their personality such as caring, respect, and spiritual growth is what will help them become true leaders of tomorrow.

By encouraging healthy competition

We want to constantly encourage children’s participation in a range of activities - academic and extra-curricular. This will help nurture their sense of competition. It is what they will have to face in the future and we prepare them to be graceful in defeat and in success.



As a parent, finding the right school for your child is perhaps one of the most important decisions you will make as a family. It is our approach to the concept of learning that makes us stand apart.

Self Exploration– Our Approach to Education

At Sherwood High, we believe in letting curious minds search for answers. As educators, we work at inspiring our children to explore the world around them. Our teachers nurture the spirit of scientific consciousness in our students and rely on alternate forms of teaching and imparting practical knowledge.

Learning for Tomorrow

Students in school today will retire by 2065! The education we impart today has to find relevance for them in the future. Our ICSE academic syllabus and system of teaching allows children to discover the world as it evolves around them. It helps them take this new knowledge and adapt it to their needs. We help them learn the new, lead their peers, and achieve success on their mettle.

Chairman’s Message

When Sherwood High was first conceptualised and established in 2010 by the Founding Members of our Trust, it was with the intention of creating an educational hub that would be like no other. Today, we are proud to say that our institution functions on a strong base of world-class infrastructure and is backed by an amazing team.

At Sherwood High, we believe in focusing on various dimensions of growth for a child and not just academics. Learning methods in our school incorporate multiple intelligence. Step into our school and you will experience a caring atmosphere, where our teachers are more of mentors, guiding young minds, and helping them discover the world.

We believe in setting the bar high with our system of holistic learning. We believe in showing you the difference we make – come, visit our school and interact with our staff to ease your doubts. We are sure that you will see the good hands that your children will be in, here at Sherwood High, one of the most sought after ICSE schools in Bannerghatta Road, Bangalore.

Principal’s Message


Every child is a bundle of boundless and unique energy. The intellect, emotions and abilities that each child possesses is diverse as well as distinct. This is the reason why it is important for us to provide the most conducive and nurturing environment for children to grow. Providing opportunities for them according to their interests, aptitude and inclinations is key to realising their true potential.

Education is a life-long journey that helps an individual transform into a compassionate, responsible and enterprising human being. The purpose of a school is to set the right foundation for the development of a child, helping them flourish and take the right path in their lifelong journey of self-transformation.

Sherwood High offers the very best in learning experiences, tailored and curated to meet the needs of every child. We impart education through a wide variety of challenging, enjoyable, and compelling curricular opportunities, athletic programmes, and activities that allow students to express their artistic potential. Every child is encouraged to engage in diverse experiences both inside and outside the classroom. Our mission is to create a schooling experience that is Indian at heart and universal in approach, guiding our students with the motto – Learn. Lead. Succeed.

At Sherwood High, students are at the centre of learning, equipping learners with the right set of tools, experiences and mindsets not just to tackle the unforeseen challenges that will come their way in the future, but also endow them with the confidence to transform adversities into opportunities for a better tomorrow. We strive to consciously build a cooperative atmosphere where students are encouraged to uplift each other. We endeavour to create an environment where students embark on a path of growth and welfare and achieve their milestones in their own way, at their own pace.

While providing a safe and nurturing environment to our students, we aim to instill in them values and characteristics that will help them in leading enriching lives while contributing towards the growth and welfare of the society. Sherwood High is founded on a strong sense of community. I appreciate each member of the Sherwood High Community for their contributions in making our school a positive and encouraging place.

Education is the greatest gift parents can give to their children, and at Sherwood High we are committed to working in tandem with our parents to make schooling not only a memorable experience but also a valuable one. Thank you, dear parents, for choosing Sherwood High. I hope our journey together is truly remarkable.

Warm Regards

Dean’s Message


I feel privileged to be a member of the Sherwood community where every person is treated with dignity and respect.

It is wonderful to have children back in school again. Children have lost two precious years of their schooling to the pandemic. For every child, irrespective of the grade they belong to, this is a phase of transition. One that is filled with new challenges to cope with.

We all have now come to terms with the fact that change is something that we have to constantly deal with. But coping with change is not always easy. In line with this, we have chosen the theme for the Academic Year 2022-23 as ‘The Renewal – Nurturing Resilience through Connection’. The pandemic has taught us a lot of lessons. We have realised that it is impossible for us to predict what the future holds for us. It is therefore important for us to equip our students to be resilient individuals. By this, we would enable them to face the uncertainties of the future. It is the need of the hour for us to encourage students to cherish their successes, while at the same time guide them to handle failures with grace.

At Sherwood, we believe that school life is far more than just academics. The school achieves its motto – Learn. Lead. Succeed. when every child succeeds to achieve being the best version of themselves in everything they do – be it academics, sports or other extracurricular activities.

School in fact is a miniature of society. Hence, schooling would be incomplete without catering to the social-emotional well being of our students. The activities planned at Sherwood High help develop social competence and pro-social values, make students understand their purpose in life, be optimistic in their approach to solving complex problems and help them build effective coping mechanisms when faced with a challenging situation.

I thank our dear parents and guardians on behalf of Sherwood High for choosing us as partners to help in the all round development of your child. It is my sincere wish that every Sherwoodian has a fruitful and memorable schooling experience.
