Trinity Mid-Whitgiftian Association
for the former pupils and past-and-present staff of Trinity School, Croydon.


The TMWA is a social organisation for the former pupils of Trinity School, Croydon.

Past and present members of staff are also eligible for membership, and are always welcome - no recriminations!

We have a well-equipped clubhouse in Sanderstead, a few miles away from the school, which is the headquarters for sports clubs (cricket, rugby and hockey) and a very active Amateur Dramatic society, the Mitre Players.


As this page was being edited we heard of the death of Grant Adley (1975). Grant had been ill for some time, but it is a shock nevertheless. He was a keen rugby and hockey player in his time, and was very involved with the golf Society more recently.

Funeral details will be added below when known.


We are delighted to announce that, following the retirement of Mark Bishop as Headmaster of Trinity, his successor, Alasdair Kennedy (see below) has accepted our invitation to become our President.

FOUNDER'S DAY SUPPER 2017, 24th March

Another great success!

Congratulations to Warwick Jones and Alex Greenslade, and their indefatigable team of helpers, who masterminded a very successful Supper on Friday 24th. Over 240 people had booked (a record in recent times), and they enjoyed excellent food, short speeches, a team game and some magic moments.

Next year's supper will be on Friday 23rd March, 2018.

Winter Sports Progress

As Easter approaches, how are the winter clubs doing? The rugby club is threatening to win promotion. The Hockey 1st XI is safe in Surrey Div 1, and the 2nd XI is also in the frame for promotion. 3rd and 4th XIs are safe in their respective leagues, so overall they are all well.

Membership Cards

A new system has been introduced for all members of the Association and the Sanderstead Sports Clubs. The membership card will enable members to purchase goods from the bar at 'members' rates', and will act as a debit card.

If you are a paid up member of the TMWA or of a TSSSC clubs, you are entitled to apply for a card - go to to apply.


It was a great shock when it was announced in February that Tony Meech had died in Spain at the very end of January. He was a keen sportsman in his younger days, and remained a good friend to the TMWA all his life.

His ashes will be buried under a tree at the clubhouse on Friday 26th May, followed by a celebration of his life in the clubhouse. The ceremony will start at 7 p.m. and we will adjourn to the bar at 7.30.

In order to judge the catering, please advise Warwick Jones ( if you plan to attend?

Folk and Blues evenings

Under the guidance of Neil Pepper (1971) we have started holding Folk and Blues evening on alternate Wednesday evenings, at the club, starting at 9 p.m. Entrance is free and audience and participants are equally welcome.
They run on alternate  Wednesdays.
