The range of enrichment opportunities at Trent ensures there is something for everyone to enjoy.  Discovering and nurturing passions helps students to prepare for an independent life with confidence, character and a spirit of curiosity.

Discover our specialist areas

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

GIVING BACK

As a school community, we are committed to making a positive impact in the wider world. All students contribute to our work in the local community through fundraising, mentoring and volunteering by participating in a range of initiatives such as Community Service, Buddy Reading and CCF.

Get involved and lead

Some of the available clubs and societies change each term, with others being offered continuously throughout the year with many activities based around Sport, Music and Drama. In addition, students can participate in school wide events such as charity fundraising, peer mentoring and organising sports activities for the younger year groups.
