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. It is entrepreneurial. It is based on the principles of ethical citizenship. It has been brought to life by the community.
The School began as a primary school in 2016, 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.
