An independent secular school shaped by ethical citizenship and entrepreneurial thinking, Sandridge is an incubator for innovation and positive social impact.
In 2014 the School’s Co-founders, Dr Jeanne Shaw and Sophie Fenton, questioned why lawyers start law firms, why doctors start medical practices, yet schools are not started by teachers.
They asked ‘what happens when a school is imagined, built and run by teachers?’ The result is the founding of the Sandridge School.
Sandridge School is an exciting independent, co-educational school. We work in partnership with students, parents, and our community to enable our children to become motivated, lifelong learners.
We say that schooling is not a practice for the real thing … we equip our students to become entrepreneurial thinkers, high impact doers, and positive contributors to our society in the here and now.
Sandridge School is unique. It is a school founded by educators, entrepreneurs, and innovators. It doesn’t just teach entrepreneurship, it operates entrepreneurially. It is based on the principles of ethical citizenship. It has been brought to life by the community.
The School launched in 2016, and is located in the old Customs House, at 126 Nelson Place in Williamstown. We practice what we teach: as a dynamic, entrepreneurial organisation, we will continue to develop and expand our programs on an ongoing basis.
