Bayfield High School is a co-educational school of approximately 600 students. We are a school with a well-developed reputation for excellence. It is in fact one of New Zealand’s top-performing academic schools and certainly Otago’s fastest growing school. Bayfield serves the Southern Dunedin area of Dunedin City.

Most of our students come from the Otago Peninsula, Andersons Bay, Waverley, St Clair and Tahuna. However recent roll growths have resulted in students coming from all over the city and areas beyond the city.
