Engaging all the above areas of study and more, Trident College hosts an annual Eisteddfod to build confidence, celebrate and showcase cultural excellence.

Trident Eisteddfod


The Trident Eisteddfod is an inter-house Arts and Cultural festival which takes place in the first term where students are free to choose to participate in a range of activities. Every student in the College must participate in at least one activity. The success and value of the Eisteddfod lies in its diversity of activities, in its creative processes and in its ability to extract a sense of passion in students; it is an event that requires motivation and negotiation, leadership skills and team effort, and for students to challenge themselves in things that they would not normally do. The Visual Arts and Industrial Design require teams to work on projects while Photography is judged on an individual basis. All students are required to be part of the House singing while Music can be an individual or group piece. Drama is a compulsory activity for Year 7 to Year 11 where cross curricula learning takes place and the English Literature texts are dramatized. Public Speaking consists of debate, speeches, monologues, performing poetry and one minute teasers. When Eisteddfod arrives, spirits have reached fever pitch and the Houses compete over four days culminating in the Inter-House singing.
