Bolton School Has a New Head of Infants
Tuesday, 12 April 2022
Mrs Jo Field has been appointed as the new Head of Beech House, the Infant School for girls and boys aged 3 to 7 years at Bolton School.
An excited Mrs Field, who will take up her new position at the start of the Summer Term, said: ‘I am absolutely thrilled to be joining Bolton School as its new Primary Division begins to take shape. It is an exciting time and, during the course of the next Term, I look forward to getting to know all the pupils, parents and staff. For me, the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is where all the magic begins. I firmly believe that by starting correctly, we can guide children from an early age, ensuring the right foundations are laid.’
Previously, Mrs Field had roles as Deputy Head and Acting Head Teacher at Eagley Infant School in Bolton, where she taught for seven years. She also worked for seven years at Ladywood School in Bolton, at St John’s Bromley Cross and at St Ethelbert’s Primary School where she began her career. She has worked predominantly with Key Stage 1 and EYFS children.
Mrs Field graduated with a degree in English Literature from the University of Lancaster and undertook a Graduate Teaching Programme at St Ethelbert’s. She has always aspired to be a school leader and has completed a number of professional courses including the National Professional Qualification for Headship (NPQH).
Head of Primary Division Mrs Sue Faulkner said: ‘We are delighted with our new appointment. Mrs Field’s enthusiasm and commitment to Infant School education is inspirational. I am looking forward to working with her as we build further upon the success of our Primary Division at Bolton School, where our dedicated Infant, Junior Girls and Junior Boys’ Schools allow us to provide our children with the very best education.'
Mrs Field is married with two teenage children, lives in the town and enjoys hiking and time spent in the great outdoors.
