Parents are encouraged to enrol students on or before their fourth birthday and before each child turns five a school interview and orientation visit will be arranged.

We are running a pre school transition programme called “Little Acorns” which has been designed specifically for transitioning pre-enrolled children turning 5 into the school setting. Parents are invited to bring their child to attend this programme before starting school.

There are usually 3 sessions will be held on Wednesday morning from 9.00 am until 10.00 am

“Little Acorns” is an opportunity for parents and children to become familiar with school expectations and for your child to get used to the school environment and systems.  During these sessions your child will use school literacy and numeracy equipment and we aim to make the time together fun as well as informative.


Sherwood offers a number of places to foreign fee-paying students. International students are integrated into mainstream classes in order to learn English in a natural way and fully experience our culture. It is also a wonderful opportunity for your child to share his or her culture with other students and to experience the best educational opportunities available.
