Everything we do is with the community of Trent in mind; we focus on both the parents and students. We enjoy liaising with teachers to support initiatives in school from careers to supporting parents new to Trent.

Our close relationship with Trent and TPA member Mr Magnus Cowie, Dep.Head Pastoral, is a real positive - we gain a valuable insight into our hardworking school and the school gets to hear directly from its parent group.

We support our Trent students and enjoy hearing from them in meetings; we provide a speech day prize; and support a creative writing competition. Our 'As New' shop is a great place for uniform for children who grow too fast! And of course our social events are a draw for all parents.

Jump in

We meet twice a term, get through the agenda quickly and we all have a voice. We all contribute to discussions and we all do something away from the meetings, some organise our social events, others chat to school teachers and others make a difference for our students. Whatever you can do it will be appreciated, everyone very much has a place at the meeting table. So jump in and join us. 

Let us entertain you

Royal Finale Ball

In association with the Trent Parents' Association, we invite you to join us for this very special event, which rounds off a wonderful year of celebrations.


As we launched the 150th anniversary with a visit from His Royal Highness The Earl of Wessex, what better way than to end on a royal theme.  A Champagne reception awaits, as you arrive to a regal welcome. Enjoy a banquet fit to satisfy any royal palate and dance the night away to the delightful tones of 'The Jazz Dynamos'.


Ticket price includes: Arrival drink, three course dinner, live band and late night DJ. A drinks package and survivors' breakfast are available to purchase (at point of booking).


Any proceeds from the sale of tickets will go to the Trent College Foundation. 

Further details on the event and the online booking process can be found here.
