The Barker Uniform

The Barker Uniform

School uniforms are an important part of the experience of any school. They provide us with a sense of time and place.

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 Junior, Middle and Senior school uniforms, is available in this booklet.

New On Field Sports Uniform

Over the course of the past two years, a committee of staff and students have worked closely with prominent designer Jonathan Ward and OnTrack, a leading Australian company in custom-made sportswear, to review, refine and update Barker’s sporting and co-curricular garments. The signature Barker ‘red’ now connects the academic uniform with the sporting and co-curricular livery to reinforce the strong Barker narrative.

The final design beautifully marries together Barker’s two reds – the deeper academic red and the on field sport red. The new on field sport uniforms allow for flexibility and versatility. The jerseys and shirts are gender neutral and can be worn by girls or boys, creating an inclusive environment across all sports.

The final collection offers a classic Barker feel, but with a very contemporary expression.

The uniforms are available from Plume Store or Noone's Chatswood store from Monday 21 March 2022.
