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 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. 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 began as a primary school in 2016, with the Junior School located in the old Customs House, 126 Nelson Place in Williamstown. The School will evolve into a Foundation to Year 12 school over two campuses in a phased development plan by 2023.
