About Barker College

Located on Sydney’s North Shore, Barker College is an Anglican day and boarding school. The School is currently transitioning to become fully coeducational by 2022. Girls commenced in Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten in 2018, in 2019 girls will start in Year 3 and in Year 7 in 2020.

Through the Christian story we instil in our students the capacity, insight and knowledge they need to inspire real change.  By exposing our students to diverse opportunities and experiences, they’re able to develop resilience and adaptability within a supportive environment.

Every Barker student is different.  What they all have in common is a confidence to embrace the challenge of the future and a capacity to make their own positive impact on the world.

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 and Learning Precinct 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.

To learn more about how we inspire every student, in every experience, every day, visit and book on one of our regular school tours.
