Sherwood Junior School in Warsop is situated on the west side of Sherwood Street, near the corner of Sherwood and Titchfield streets. Presumably it takes it name from the street and/or the part of Sherwood Forest nearby which inspired the street name. If the name itself is thus not Robin Hood-related, the school is nonetheless part of a cluster of localities with Robin Hood/Sherwood-themed names in Warsop. Missing from late-19th to mid-20th century O.S. maps, the school (and its name) probably date from the latter half of the 20th century.
