space to perform

Our 45 acre campus provides the perfect setting for talent and creativity to thrive. A range of contemporary performance spaces, such as the 500 seat May Hall, Black Box drama studio and a dedicated dance studio, accommodate large-scale productions and smaller shows.

Specialist teaching

Our specialist staff are well-equipped to deliver first-class teaching and guidance. Collectively they hold an impressive array of industry experience and expertise, from long-standing roles on daytime television to prestigious qualifications from The Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts and the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.



Our most successful pupils have transformed their passion for Drama into successful careers on the stage, television and behind the scenes. We encourage pupils to pursue their ambitions and support them in navigating a competitive industry.

Opportunities for every pupil to participate

Centre stage isn’t for everyone, however offstage opportunities ensure every pupil benefits from Drama. In Year 6 we introduce pupils to a variety of design and management roles. At Trent pupils can develop their skill set further with the specialist support of an industry professional at Technical Theatre Club.

High quality productions

From musicals to Shakespeare, all age groups are given the opportunity to participate in high quality school productions each year. Pupils make full use of the on-site performances spaces such as the May Hall, drama studios and the wonderful grounds.
