Mount Barker Community College (4186)

School Overview

Mount Barker Community College is a proud Independent Public School with a long history of strong community connections and success for our students.

We pride ourselves on supporting personal excellence in our students through quality teaching, and we are active in seeking opportunities for enrichment through clubs, camps, excursions and community service.

The goal of building a strong community underpins our activities to involve parents and community members in supporting our students' learning both in and beyond our college. We promote a friendly, welcoming environment to ensure our school is a great place to be.

Established in 2008, our school was born from the community belief that the educational needs of our students would be better served by catering for Kindergarten to Year 12 students. It was formed by joining the former Mount Barker Primary School (Est. 1921) and the former Mount Barker Senior High School (Est. 1962).

Our school is a rural campus serving the needs of our diverse local community, and capturing students within a 55 kilometre radius.

We extend the opportunities for our community's children right across the spectrum from pre-kindy programs, with the Child Health Centre on campus, right through their learning journeys to individualised pathways in our senior school utilising our Registered Training Organisation status.

We offer VET Certificates on our college farm, in our Trade Training Centre and in our commercial kitchen.

Our community takes pride in supporting our students through many partnerships and workplace opportunities. We acknowledge our cultural diversity with our increasing Afghani student enrolments and our proud, local Noongar history.
