About Sherwood Hall

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 a 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.

The school aims to help the child blossom into a complete self-sufficient individual. We believe in the proverb, “A healthy mind in a healthy body.” Children are encouraged to develop their skills in sports and games. Apart from the syllabus, the teachers strive to inculcate the proper values.

Sherwood Hall follows the Curriculum and syllabus of Central Board of Secondary Education. The children are trained to write the All-India Senior Secondary Certificate Examination.

Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation: (CCE)

This evaluation of the student is a continuous process. The assessment is done both at the beginning and during the instructional process. The many techniques used in the process cover placement and formative evaluation.

Assessments of the students’ performance are done frequently every month as Formative assessments and also at the end of the term as summative assessment.

The comprehensive part of the CCE focuses on the all-round development of the child’s personality. The assessment is done in the fields of scholastic, co-scholastic, life-skills, co-curricular, attitudes and values. The assessment is both formal and informal and is done periodically using multiple techniques of evaluation. The aim is to make the students blossom into responsible citizens, while nurturing their talents, life-skills and academic pursuits. Sherwood Hall follows this method of evaluation for classes I to X.
