Trent Young's CE


Let your light shine

Welcome from our headteacher

A very warm welcome to Trent Young's CE School.


Thank you for your interest in our school. We hope that you will find our website both interesting and informative, as well as giving a taste for what is important to us at our school. 


Here at Trent, we believe that is it vital that each child understands how special, unique, and valued they are and is able to live out our vision: to let your light shine.  Our curriculum is designed to provide all children with the best possible opportunities to experience success, and to help develop life long learners. 


We look upon education as the lighting of a fire and our aim is to equip our children with the skills to succeed in life in the 21st century, both on an academic and a personal level. Children achieve when they are inspired and motivated, and we support this philosophy by providing a wide and balanced range of activities within a caring and secure learning environment. 


We believe that in order for a child to achieve they need to have the confidence and security to try new things and to be open to many possibilities. A strong partnership between the school, parents, children, the church and the Diocese of Salisbury Academy Trust supports pupils at Trent to develop a positive attitude to learning. This partnership is essential for the school and its learners. 


You are warmly welcome to make a personal visit to our school to see how we work and experience our ethos.  If you would like to take the opportunity to do so, then please contact the school to arrange a time when I can show you around. 


I look forward to meeting you and your children.
