About Us

Sherwood Hall was founded by Mrs. Olga Frohlich, an educationist and a Visionary. Her love for children and education prompted her to found the School in June 1971. It started as a small school with the Nursery Section and classes I to VII. Mrs. Frohlich enrolled experienced teachers and the school soon became well-known for its discipline, music and imparting quality education.

In the year 1974, Mrs. Frohlich ensured the affiliation of Sherwood Hall to the Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi. In 1979, classes XI & XII were introduced, thus paving the way for full-fledged Senior Secondary School. The school is now managed by Sherwood Educational Society –its members being Mrs. Devi PalaniSwamy, President and Mrs. Shree Vidhya Murali, M.A. Correspondent.
