Getting Started with Course Selection
Welcome to the Bayfield High School online course selection
Our course structure has been designed to provide the widest possible flexibility in course choice, and should the need arise, provide opportunities for pursuing courses at more than one level in the same year.
The courses cater for students who are planning to go to university, polytechnic or other tertiary institutions and also for students who are planning to enter the workforce at the end of Year 12 or Year 13.
Remember that there are prerequisites that must be met to gain entry into most courses for NCEA. Students will have their courses confirmed in January.
Bayfield High School offers a range of career-related courses that complement our conventional subjects. These courses almost always offer Standards for one or more national qualifications.
It is important to take advantage of the opportunities for advice which the school provides as you plan your courses for the coming year. Please contact the school office to make an appointment with the careers advisor if you need help or advise planning for your future.
The following information is designed to help you achieve to your potential, reach your goals and enjoy a successful year at Bayfield High School in Year 11, 12 or 13.

Students who excel academically may also enter for a New Zealand Scholarship (as well as NCEA Level 3) in 1 or more subjects.
The content of the Scholarship course is the same as for NCEA Level 3 but on top of that students will be expected to do independent work in greater depth.
All assessments are external (i.e. exams) and are standards based.
