THE application PROCESS

Relocating to the UK?

We are experienced at working with families who are relocating and can arrange school tours to suit your availability, including during school holidays. We can arrange Skype interviews and liaise with overseas schools to conduct assessments. We know there are many factors involved in relocation, and will adapt the admissions journey to suit your family’s needs.

Students can join us at the start of our school year in September or throughout the academic year. Where possible, we encourage families to tour our school before registering for a place. Families applying to Trent College can do so directly or via an overseas educational agent.
