Arthur Street School is Dunedin’s longest estab­lished school hav­ing some­what unique begin­ning. It star­ted on board the “Phil­lip Laing” where the immig­rants’ school teacher, James Blackie com­menced classes.

On arrival, the school was trans­ferred to a water­front site near the foot of Dowl­ing Street where it was known as the Beach School. In 1864 the school was shif­ted to the corner of Tennyson Street and York Place where it was known as the Middle School. In 1877 it was shif­ted to its present site and renamed Arthur Street School.

The school was rebuilt in the mid-1960’s repla­cing the ori­ginal build­ings with the ones you see today.
