Notes on qualifying for criteria 4 or 5 in the Admissions Code 

  • Please note that a “faithful and regular worshipper” means that a parent (with parental responsibility for the child) has been attending a church service at least twice a month. Please fill in a welcome card or contact the Church Office ( if you are new to us. 

  • You are also required to be on our Electoral Roll for at least six months prior to your application. (Note that if you live outside the parish boundary, you must attend Christ Church for six months before joining the Electoral Roll). Please contact the Church Office for further information. 

  • We love to welcome new families who are primarily interested in applying for Trent School places, but we ask that you let us know so that we can identify how to support you best as a family. 

  • Early each January the Leadership Team have a meeting to sign Supplementary Information Forms (required for those applying to Trent under Admission Criteria 4, 5 or 6). Please send these to the Church office in the preceding December. 

More important still 

  • Trent is a wonderful school and benefits from the strong bond with Christ Church.  But more than your child attending an outstanding school, we would love you to become involved with us as a church family and community.  We hope that you will soon see that we are a family united by our love for the Lord Jesus, caring deeply for each other, loving each other sacrificially and encouraging each other weekly in our faith in God. 

  • We have various Small Groups that help us get to know others better and deepen our understanding of the Bible, and these run at different times through the week. We also regularly run short courses for those wanting to further explore faith in God.  Please contact if you are interested in knowing more about these or joining one.
