At Trent College, every day brings new opportunities to go further in the pursuit of your goals and passions. Set within a safe, secure 45-acre campus, Trent College is home to a happy and welcoming school community where every child can flourish.

We encourage our pupils to aim as high as they can, to be inquisitive, confident, and ambitious; at the same time, we urge them not to fear failure and to see challenge and adversity as opportunities, not obstacles. All this we do both in the classroom but also through the richness and diversity of school life that lies beyond.
