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 schoolWe 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.

When you dare to dream...

Not so long ago, Jeanne and I had a dream. We wanted to create a school based on the humanness of education, where ethical citizenship and entrepreneurship were at the centre of a dynamic and real world learning environment.

And thanks to the support of our families, our team, the parents who joined us and the community ... Feb 1st, 2016 that dream came true!

We asked ‘what happens when a school is imagined, built and run by teachers?’ The result is the founding of the Sandridge School.
