Anchored in the desire to establish a competent educational system for children; was the birth of the Sherwood Academy. An autonomous educational establishment, the Academy owes its existence to the visionary zeal of engineer philanthropist K.B. Lal. Functioning under the aegis of the renowned U.S. Srivastava Memorial Society, Lucknow, the Sherwood Academy is today a byword for quality education. During the last 2 decades, the academy has produced several achievers in all fields. But this is not all. The academy has embarked upon a dynamic new-age programme ; where learning is both instructional and specifically ethno-spiritual.
