Choosing the right school for your child’s education is a big decision. That’s why we’ve designed our site to give you a full insight into Barker’s proud history, academic program, values, achievements, and future goals.
If you have any questions during the enrolment process, the Enrolments office will be more than happy to help. Feel free to call on (02) 8438 7207.
Experience Barker on a tour of the School
Reading about Barker gives you a strong sense of who we are. However, it’s only once you experience the campus, facilities and students that you can fully appreciate what makes a Barker education so unique.
To allow us to give you the full Barker experience and all the insight you need, we encourage you to book ahead through this website.
Offers of Places
For students entering Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and Years 3, 5 and 7, we offer places based on strict order of age at the date we receive their application and subject to the School's priority list. Once offered, we ask for payment of a confirmation fee to hold the place.
For families who currently have students at Barker, please refer to Mr Heath's blog from November 4, 2022 regarding the waiting list for siblings NAPLAN, PISA and all that (barker.college)
A Tight-Knit Community for Boarders
Boarding is a unique experience offered to our senior students, starting in Year 10. By learning, growing and living together, students form bonds that will often last a lifetime.
With a long history of supporting country families, we give preference to students who are coming to Barker from rural and regional areas.
Country families are encouraged to get in touch with our Enrolments Office to arrange a tour of the campus and our boarding facilities.
An Anglican School for Everyone
While we’re an Anglican school, we enrol students of all faiths and strongly believe that our school community is enriched by diversity.
