Moving from primary to secondary school is a milestone moment. At Trent College we work hard to ensure a smooth transition for every pupil, and that is no different during the current situation brought about by the pandemic. This page provides some links to useful information to help prepare for the move to Year 7.

By Trinity Term in Year 6, most pupils joining us Year 7 will already have visited several times, and be familiar with the campus. A few may not have had chance to come and see us so often. Here you will find some downloadable PowerPoint files to introduce your child to some key elements of our Trent curriculum. This is by no means exhaustive, but is a useful starting point, especially for anyone who would like to do a little summer reading.
