General Comments: There are two distinct differences at Barker College. One is that it’s a school that deliberately and intentionally allows people to thrive in a holistic sense – emotionally, physiologically, physically, academically.
The second thing is that we have a firm coeducational identity and a firm expression of that. It’s a view that everybody can find a place and thrive irrespective of interests, skillset or capacity and be committed to doing that in a way that brings young men and young women together for the proper expression of human interaction and identity.
This is an exciting time to be considering a Barker education for your child. The School’s culture is inclusive, innovative and full of hope for the future. We are very excited about the years that lie ahead.
