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 Junior, Middle and Senior school uniforms, is available in this booklet.
Introduction of new core PE Uniform in 2022
In 2022, Barker College will complete its transition to become a fully coeducational school. To coincide with this significant event and to complete the full review of both our academic and sport uniforms, we are delighted to share with you the design for the new core PE uniform.
The signature Barker ‘red’ now connects the academic uniform with the sporting livery to reinforce the strong Barker narrative.
