Boarding at Trent College offers something different for every family and every pupil, but it always provides a safe and nurturing home from home that is full of self-discovery opportunities. Our weekly boarders know that they have a safe comfortable and friendly base during their working week, whilst our full boarders enjoy complete social, cultural and academic integration into the life of the school. Our boarders’ activity programme capitalises on our proximity to the vibrant city of Nottingham, and encourages pupils to make the most of their free time in the evenings and at weekends. Regular trips make full use of local facilities and on-site activities, including themed food & film nights, provide plenty of opportunity for pupils to socialise.

Trent is proud to provide excellent academic and pastoral support for pupils from military families. We have a longstanding history of supporting families in the forces. We create a nurturing, family atmosphere that places a strong emphasis on the growth and development of each pupil. This approach enables all young people to thrive and reach their full potential. Parents who are currently serving in the British Armed Forces or who are currently working for the Foreign Office automatically receive the Albert Ball Scholarship.
