Bayfield High School believes that wearing your uniform correctly and neatly is important in developing a sense of pride in oneself and the school.

Our school always expects a high standard of uniform and grooming.

A range of uniform choices are provided, with regulation garments tailored to suit boys and girls. There is no difference between summer and winter seasons – Dunedin can experience changeable weather at any time of year, and students are expected to dress sensibly to reflect these unpredictable changes, e.g. to wear a jersey and rain jacket on cold  days regardless of when those cold days occur.

Uniforms are available in town from the NZ Uniform Shop in Moray Place.
