Sherwood High believes competition is a healthy process, that allows students to sharpen their skills, work towards achieving their goals, recognise their talent and also to help them strive for success. We encourage all the students to take part in more and more competitions, to polish their abilities and have some fun and create memories.

Paul Morphy said, Unlike other games in which lucre is the end and aim, [chess] recommends itself to the wise by the fact that, its mimic battles are fought for no prize but honour. It is eminently, and emphatically the philosopher’s game.
