Reaching the top 3% of independent schools in the country for Sport is testament to the pursuit of excellence delivered by the Sports department, who ensure opportunities are available for everyone; from novices to high performance athletes.
The award is based on the analysis of 18 different sports and specific national competitions – with more weighting given to success in a range of sports rather than a single sport, as well as competitions with more teams competing. At Trent College, pupils enjoy a vast array of sports as part of the well-rounded sporting programme, with competition entries based upon identifying the right opportunity for each team or individual.

Richard Mahony, Director of Sport, was delighted with the announcement sharing, “It is wonderful to receive independent recognition for our commitment to sport and increasing participation across all age groups and abilities. Last year saw 450 pupils representing the school in a range of sports. It is through the joy of participation that our reputation for regional and national success thrives.”
