Welcome to Geoffrey Field Infant School
We are a large Infant school situated within a diverse community in the south of Reading. The school is set in extensive and attractive grounds, giving the pupils plenty of space to learn and play. Each year group benefits from its own dedicated outdoor teaching and learning area.
We have approximately 320 pupils on roll across 10 classes, including a Nursery class. Pupils in the Nursery attend for 15 hours each week for either a morning or an afternoon session.
We will shortly be offering places in our nursery for those eligible to start in September 2018.
If your child will turn 3 before the 31st August 2018 please ensure you have submitted your application form to the school office asap.
