Barker College is an independent Anglican day and boarding school located in the suburb of Hornsby, on Sydney’s North Shore.
Barker Boarding is for senior students only and with a maximum student population of 60, it falls into the boutique category. This allows us to have a very high teacher to boarder ratio ensuring personalised attention that meets the needs of our boarders. Students commence boarding in Year 10 which coincides with the time that the Barker Senior School transforms to a coeducational structure.
Families can now consider keeping their children closer to home until the end of Year 9 and then elect to enter boarding from the start of Year 10. Our programs of pastoral care and support have been developed to match the needs of young people as they strive to meet their academic responsibilities whilst also allowing them to explore their sporting, musical, artistic, performing arts and outdoor educational aspirations. Barker’s student driven timetables ensure that every student has the opportunity to study the subject combinations of his or her choice and interest. Subject choice is not restricted by school specified timetable lines and combinations.
