The previous school building in Fairlawn Road, Montpelier, before relocating to Allfoxton Road, Horfield

In 2000, against a background of opposition by Bristol City Council to selective education and declining academic results,[1] Fairfield closed as a grammar school and reopened as a comprehensive, being renamed Fairfield High School. In 2006, the new school moved to new purpose-designed buildings at Stottbury Road, Bristol.[2] One reason for the move was that the existing site had room for only some five hundred pupils, a number which was considered to be too low.[3]

Academic achievement[edit]

The school has improved its results year on year and achieved its best ever GCSE scores in 2012, the table below shows the percentage of students hitting the key measure of 5 A*-C including English and Mathematics. [4]
