Sandridge is the entrepreneurial school that
inspires constructive intellect, social prosperity
and nourishes people’s lives.
In 2014 the School’s 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 new independent, co-educational school opening in 2016. It is a school defined by education that shapes the professional, personal, social and community life of the students and the teachers.
We say that schooling is not a practice for the real thing … it is an internship for entrepreneurial thinkers and social impact change agents in the here and now.
Sandridge School is unique. It is a school founded by educators. It is entrepreneurial. It is based on the principles of ethical citizenship. It has been brought to life by the community.
The School will begin as a primary school, with the Junior School being located in the old Customs House, 126 Nelson Place in Williamstown, with a goal to being a Preparatory to Year 12 school over a phased development plan.
