Admission Code

Trent is a popular, over-subscribed school. We usually have more than 100 applicants for our single Reception class of 30 children. In order to be fair and clear, on this page we publish the criteria used by our Admission Authority to rank all of the applicants. Please read it carefully. You may wish to visit Trent at one of our Prospective Parent Tours. If you would like to talk to us about how to apply, please call Mrs Ring in the school office 02084496875. It is important to us that you understand what to do and how places are allocated.
