The School year is divided into four terms, beginning in January, April, July and October. The year's fees for Year 12 students will be invoiced and payable during the first three terms of their Year 12 year. Fees for all other Years will be invoiced and payable at the commencement of each of the four terms.
All fees are payable in advance. The last day for payment of fees in any term is the tenth School day after the term begins. All fees are payable by direct debit using the FACTS payment platform - a new initiative introduced in 2023, or prepay fees for several years in advance. Please see Prepayment of Tuition Fees below.
Prepayment of Tuition Fees
Barker College offers families the opportunity to obtain a multi-year prepayment discount on their children’s Tuition Fees.
Families are able to prepay Tuition Fees for their children for two or more years, up to a maximum of six years, with a significant discount on Tuition Fees. Read more about the prepayment of Tuition Fees HERE.
The discount of 1.5% will continue to apply for one-year prepayments. Prepayment for multiple years, up to 6 years in advance, attract a scaling discount of 2%, 4%, 6%, 8%, 10% and 12% with sibling discounts of 5% remaining in place.
The above discounts are calculated by first applying an implied annual fee increase equivalent to the most recent fee increase, or a minimum of 2.5%.
A reduction of 5% will apply in the case of each subsequent child attending the School at the same time as his or her older sibling. To be eligible for the reduction, children must be in attendance simultaneously.
Special provision may be made for the children of Anglican Clergy in certain circumstances.
Attention is directed to the necessity of giving the Head of Barker College a full school term's notice in writing of the intention to withdraw a student from the School. In default of such notice, one term's fees will be payable.
Students accepted for boarding places are expected to continue to attend the School as Boarders. Boarders may only become day students with the approval of the Head of Barker College and then only at the end of a School year and after a semester's notice in writing has been provided.
