On the cusp of its 10th anniversary, we are well and truly the Sherwood High Community today. Let us give you a glimpse into what has been our story.
A decade ago, Sherwood High began with a simple vision of creating a universal 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 these youngsters within its portals.
Rated amongst the best schools in south Bangalore, Sherwood High’s ‘Education by Inspiration’ has enhanced the identity of our students as ideal Indian citizens and inculcated universal values of peace to become a progressive citizen rooted in Indian values and global outlook.
“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 Trust (Regd), was always to create an alma mater that both, students and their parents, would be proud to be associated with. Each day, the focus is not only academic excellence in a non-stressful environment but the overall development of a child’s personality. Counted amongst the top schools in Bangalore, our students are imbued with the values of caring and respect. Their creativity and natural penchant for innovation are encouraged on a regular basis. All this, in keeping with the school motto of Learn-Lead-Succeed.
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 with their students and that’s why we call them mentors. Always with a keen eye to recognize budding talent, our mentors form the very foundation of Sherwood High’s strong bonding with its students, while they are with us, and even once they graduate.
Book a school tour now and we wholeheartedly welcome you and your child to this wonderful community that we have nurtured.
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.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
~ Nelson Mandela
Vision 2020 is the continuous endeavour of Sherwood High management to provide quality education and world-class school infrastructure, which originated in 2010. The love and faith of parents and the dedication of our students have brought us this far.
Ranked amongst the best schools near Bannerghatta road, Sherwood High aims to embody universality in its approach to its students. 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.
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.
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.
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.

Children hold immense potential in their formative years (Classes I to VIII). At Sherwood High, the ideal student to teacher ratio ensures that any hidden talent is brought to the fore and nurtured. Whether your child excels in sports or any other form of extra-curricular activities, Sherwood High has the facilities and the infrastructure to take it forward.
Today, with over 1700 students entrusted to our care, we believe that Sherwood High is making the right kind of difference in the lives of students. Education by inspiration is how we approach our pupils. These students are our future, one that we want to see shining on as examples for all to see.
Our global society is plural, varied and diverse. Let us teach our children to respect, accept & celebrate it.
We must go beyond existing boundaries. Students should learn to appreciate differences, embrace uniqueness and stand up against prejudices and stereotypes to create a thriving, tolerant and compassionate society. There is an urgent need to redefine our reflections to support practices that connect. In the words of Malcolm Forbes, “Diversity is the art of thinking independently together”.
Our children should be raised with rich hearts, to empathise with all voices. They should continue to think and learn beyond the classroom to build empowering communities for a brighter future. There is strength to overcome the insurmountable in order to reach unparalleled heights. As Mahatma Gandhi said, “Our ability to reach unity in diversity will be the beauty and the test of our civilization”.
Though these past 18 months have brought education to the crossroads, Sherwood High had the vision to crest the challenges promptly. We ensured the forthwith transition to the online mode of learning with the admirable diligence of Team Sherwood. We focused on clear, effective, and transparent communication. With empathy, we continued to nurture our relationships with all our stakeholders and uphold their expectations appropriately. No doubt digital classrooms have been a seismic shift, but our high values and cherished ideals have steered our course in the right direction. Therein we were assured of the safety and wellness of the Sherwood family.

When Sherwood High was first conceptualized 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 has an amazing team of teachers and staff with the inimitable Academic Director, Mrs. Agnes Davies at the helm.
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, walk around the campus, 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.
