Trent College is a co-educational, independent day and boarding school for 11 to 18 year olds situated in Long Eaton on the border of Nottingham and Derby.
As a private school founded in 1868, the school combines the traditional with the modern, with the main building sitting at the heart of a striking 45-acre campus, complemented by modern facilities and creative spaces.
Students are equipped with the life skills to make the most of opportunity and the mindset to question and challenge.
This comes through nurturing confidence and inquisitive minds by combining robust, diverse academic challenges with a huge variety of extra-curricular opportunities that encourage students to find enjoyment through excellence in whatever they love, from the arts and sport to subject-based distinction, debating and more.
We pride ourselves on being one of the best schools in the East Midlands, so if you are looking for an independent school in the Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire or Leicestershire areas or for a UK boarding school, then Trent College could be the perfect choice.
