Located on Sydney’s North Shore, Barker College is an Anglican day and boarding school. In 2016, the School announced plans to become fully coeducational by 2022. Girls will now be accepted into Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten from 2018, from Year 3 in 2019 and in Year 7 in 2020.

Barker is focused on the future. We want all our students to come together to make the world a fairer place and this commitment to justice and equity begins at school. Our students are at the heart of our work.

Barker has been located on its current 50 acre site since 1895 and successive generations of leaders and families have contributed to the beautiful campus we see today. A state of the art, purpose designed and built Sports Complex will provide five court spaces, gym and exercise spaces, rooms for dance, general purpose teaching areas, a café, viewing platform and parking for over 150 cars, when completed by 2020.

At Barker we aim to provide a framework for young people to experience the best that the future offers – more than that, to become people who shape this future rather than merely people who consume it.
