Our enrichment opportunities provide pupils with a wealth of new experiences. Your child will grow in confidence as they discover new interests and acquire a different set of skills beyond the classroom.


Alongside our academic focus, Music, Sport and Drama are specialist areas at Trent College and The Elms. With our exceptional teachers, coaches and facilities students are given all the resources they require to go further in their pursuits.


the great outdoors

In the EYFS and infant year groups qualified Forest School teachers lead the children in hands on activities across our 45 acre campus. Forest School is about building a relationship with nature and acquiring practical life skills along the way. These sessions will inspire your child to explore their surroundings and seek adventure outdoors.


There are plenty of opportunities for children within the junior year groups to take on the role of an ambassador and represent the school. This can include, but is not limited to, prefects, sporting fixtures, house quiz competitions, school councillors and eco councillors.

opportunities beyond the
school day

We operate a full after school programme that offers something for every child. Children can practise many skills such as: sprinting in Running Club,  journalism for The Elms magazine, understanding biodiversity and appreciating the school environment in the Eco Club.
