Our History

Dr Lyn Bishop OAM, Founder and Principal/CEO of Sheldon College has a fundamental belief in providing a first-class educational experience for children that sees them equipped to become worthwhile and contributing citizens in a dynamic and ever-changing global community.

Over the past 20 years, Lyn founded and led Sheldon College, now acknowledged as one of the most outstanding private schools in the country. From starting a new school “against all the odds”, to building it into one of the most innovative in the state, Lyn’s approach to education has been widely recognised.   

In conjunction with a group of passionate educators from Sheldon College, Lyn and her team set out to redesign and transform the nature of pre-service teacher education, advocating for the development of higher standards of entry into the profession through establishing innovative partnerships between universities and schools. In order to address this goal, the Sheldon LINQ Academy was launched in 2019 advocating for a world-class system of teacher education and school/based programs.
