Enrolment Steps

Step 1 : Tour

Barker runs regular tours throughout each School term. We do not have an Open Day, as we prefer to show you around the School on a normal working day.

We strongly encourage you to take a tour before registering your child.

Book your tour

Step 2 : Registration

The enrolment registration form is currently offline due to a scheduled system upgrade. Whilst it is offline, please complete this registration form to register your child at Barker. When complete email to enrolments@barker.nsw.edu.au.

Due to the high demand for places, please call the Enrolments Office prior to completing the online registration form if you are registering for any grade of entry in 2024 or 2025.

Step 3 : Selected for Questionnaire

Registration listed applicants will be given a questionnaire to be filled out by the child in their handwriting. Submit with NAPLAN, school reports and two written references.

Step 4 : Selected for Interview

This interview is an important component of the application process and can occur up to two years prior to entry.


Step 5 : Background Questionnaire & Interview Meeting

This interview provides the opportunity for the School to seek more information about your child.

Step 6 : Offer Made

For any student, if the offer is declined the application is cancelled. Should you wish to apply for another year group, a fresh Enrolment Registration Form is required.

Step 7 : Offer Accepted

An offer of a place is accepted by the parent/guardian through payment of the non-refundable Admission Fee and return of a signed copy of the Enrolment Acceptance Contract.  You have two weeks from the date of offer to accept.
