Our diverse subject choices keep pupils motivated and invested as they progress through their learning journey. With our flexible GCSE options, they can pursue their strengths without compromising their interests and achieve the best academic outcomes.

Support and stretch

We recognise each child’s abilities are unique. Identifying where a pupil excels and where they need additional guidance allows us to deliver academic stretch and support as required. This tailored approach is essential to helping our pupils grow into well-rounded, accomplished individuals.

Fuelling a passion for learning

The driving force behind our academic reputation is experienced teaching staff who are passionate about their fields and committed to sharing that passion with pupils. Guided by our teaching and learning strategy, Trent teachers aim to inspire the next generation through interactive and engaging learning.

Taking High Achievers above and beyond

Led by our Director of Academic Excellence, the High Achievers programme supports pupil potential. It offers our most academic pupils opportunities to challenge themselves in new, exciting contexts, such as debates and essay competitions, and recognises their accomplishments with celebratory High Achievers Evenings.


Academic scholarships are available on entry into Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 to the highest performing candidates in our entrance assessments as well as Year 12 students who fulfil the criteria.  Academic scholars will pursue breadth and depth in their academic study, and develop and demonstrate the skills of an independent learner.
