Enrolment process


  • Read about the enrolment process here.

  • Book an enrolment interview by calling the school office (308 8159). You must bring a copy of your son's/daughter's birth certificate or passport to the enrolment interview or we can copy the certificate for you.


If you would like a prospectus please contact the school office on 07 3088159 or open it here.​


The Enrolment Scheme and associated Zone directed by the Ministry of Education continues for 2020. See enrolment scheme boundary map. On the Application to Enrol form you must indicate whether it is an In-zone or Out-of-zone enrolment. If your son/daughter is residing with parents or primary caregivers or legal guardians in the Trident zone then he/she is eligible to attend Trident but will still have to go through the interview process before any enrolment is confirmed.


Out-of-Zone Application Information:

If you reside outside the zone and you wish your son/daughter to attend Trident in 2020 you still need to complete the Application to Enrol form. On this form you must indicate which Out-of-Zone category you are in (see below for categories). All Out-of-Zone applications must still have an interview with the Year Level Dean. A number of Out-of-Zone students will be able to attend but need to be balloted based on the requirements of the Enrolment Scheme. Parents will be notified of the ballot result in the second week of Term 4. All Out of Zone enrolment forms are to be at the Trident High School office by 3.00pm on Thursday 25 October 2019, that is Week 2 in Term 4.
