Trident High School is located in Whakatāne, on the coast in the sunny Bay of Plenty.


We opened our doors in 1973. Trident is a Year 9-13, decile 4, co-educational, state secondary school with an ethnic make up of 55% Māori and 45% European. It draws its students from the Whakatāne urban area and surrounding rural fringe.


In the past ten years the roll has risen from 600 to 1100 reflecting our high standing in the community; the perception is that we are doing the right things and doing them well.


In 2001 the Ministry of Education directed the school to have an Enrolment Scheme which has not restricted growth.
