  • A Gulf News report 25 January 2010 said Sherwood Academy was closing down, then clarified that it was not closing until 2013 in a 30 January 2010 report.
  • Neither report mentioned the new Mussafah international school opening in September 2010 (Merryland International School?) that will be operated by the Sherwood Group of Schools.
  • Unclear whether both Sherwood IGCSE branch in Mushrif and Sherwood CBSE branch in Muroor are closing, or just one of them.
  • Sherwood school website changed from www.sherwoodacademyuae.com (is now spam) to www.merrylandinternational.net (not www.merrylandinternational.com) in 2009?

  • Sherwood Academy IGCSE branch full name is Al Taawan Private School Branch Sherwood Academy IGCSE ... or something like that.
  • Sherwood / Al Tawan school has two locations. Al Tawan CBSE school in the Muroor area, and the IGCSE branch in the Al Mushrif area.
  • Tel +971-2-4486688 for CBSE enquiries, or tel +971-2-4474406 for IGCSE (UK curriculum) enquiries.
  • The IGCSE curriculum is accredited by the British Council and affiliated with the Cambridge IGCSE offered by the University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) in the UK.
  • A Khaleej Times report 27 August 2006 said the Abu Dhabi Education Zone (ADEZ) had given permission to the Al Tawaan School to change to a British syllabus and increase fees by 43%-80%. Parents were not happy with the large increase.
  • Date of establishment for the UK curriculum branch assumed to be September 2006, but not confirmed.
  • No tuition fee information supplied.
