Announcement by Head of Barker College, Phillip Heath

Together in Learning. Together in Life.

The Council of Barker College is delighted to announce that commencing 2018, Barker will begin the transition to full coeducation. It is a very exciting time in the history of our School. This move will complete the Barker coeducation story which began in 1890 when girls were part of the first enrolment of the School and then continued in 1975 when girls were enrolled into the Senior School.

We are focused on the future; we want all Barker students to come together to make the world a fairer place and this commitment to justice and equity begins at school. Coeducation prepares students for life beyond the Mint Gates and therefore a Barker College education prepares students for life.

A fully coeducational school by 2022

We will open places for girls in Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten classes from 2018, for Year 3 girls from 2019 and for Year 7 girls from 2020.

We are excited about the future of education at Barker College and the invaluable opportunities coeducation will provide us to fulfil our Vision of being a leader in Christian education that inspires global hope.
