The Barker Uniform
The Barker Uniform
The Barker stripe is an iconic part of our history.
School uniforms are an important part of the experience of any school. They provide us with a sense of time and place.
From time to time, changes occur in the life of the School. However, whilst change occurs we always remember our origins and the things that bind us together across the generations. With the admission of girls into both our Junior and Middle Schools we considered how we could celebrate the identity of both boys and girls, whilst retaining the iconic colours of red and blue and something of the history of our uniforms across the generations.
Giving students a choice is appropriate in a modern school and our uniform designs for the refreshed uniforms from Junior, through Middle and the Senior Schools, allow students to decide which items to wear from a core set. This takes into account changing climates, personal preference and activity levels.
Further information about the Barker uniform, along with FAQs about the new Junior, Middle and Senior school uniforms, is available in this booklet.
Barker's Uniform Shop, Plume Store, is located at 25 Clarke Road, entry from Marillian Ave near the Junior School.
Our uniform shop is an outlet of Perm-A-Pleat Schoolwear, a Western Australian family business that supplies uniforms to schools throughout Australia.
