Fairfield High School is a secondary school in Peterchurch, Herefordshire, England.

Fairfield High School is one of the top state schools in the country.[1] In the October 2013 Ofsted inspection, the school received the best possible score - "Outstanding" in every category.[2] The school converted to academy status in May 2014.

An unusually large number of animals are kept at the school, including alpacas, turtles, reptiles and rabbits. It was threatened in the past with closure (because of its small size), along with many other schools in Herefordshire, but after a demonstration, and immense opposition to the idea, the proposal was withdrawn. Fairfield offers a large number of additional courses and BTEC courses to students. Spanish and French are taught as additional languages.
