About Eastfield Infants' and Nursery School
Eastfield Infants and Nursery School is sited on the eastern side of Louth and was built in 1866 as Holy Trinity School. There were variations of this name as the school transferred to Lindsey County Council and was re-organised for Infants and Juniors in 1926. The current name of Eastfield Infants and Nursery School was adopted in 1999.
Louth is situated at the eastern edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, it is a busy market town with a maze of narrow streets and predominantly Georgian and early-Victorian architecture.
We are a unique school as are on of the only few Infant & Nursery Schools in Lincolnshire. This means our education is specifically tailored for the early years and children starting our on their school journey.
