About Us

    Frankfield Primary and Infant School is located in South Manchester, Central Jamaica. It is approximately twelve miles from the town of Mandeville and is situated between Lancaster to the north and Pratville to the south. It is overshadowed by two huge trees - a Poinciana and a Cassia, evergreen pastures, a large well manicured playing field, a study park, a kindergarten play area and a great view of the plains in Central Jamaica. Huge royal concrete steps, a rectangular protruded area, spacious hallways and a colourful reception area- that provide a welcoming ambiance that distinguish the administrative block from the rest of the school.

    The school is co-educational. It has undergone numerous changes during its one hundred and thirty years of existence. It was established in 1881 by the Methodist Church and now operates as a government aided leased institution. It started as one class and later developed into an all age school but with the advent of the secondary school, and one placed in close proximity, it was changed to primary in 1976.
