Former Ballarat Grammar teacher Sophie Fenton opens Sandridge School
A FORMER Ballarat teacher, who has opened an independent secular school in Melbourne, has hopes of opening more schools in Victoria.
Sophie Fenton, who previously taught at Ballarat Grammar and Loreto College, is the co-founder and deputy principal of Sandridge School which opened its doors last week in Williamstown – after 18 months’ planning.
The entrepreneurial school founded by educators has 87 children enrolled from prep to year 5, with another 500 on a waiting list.
