The pastoral system at Trent is designed to provide the highest quality of care to every individual.
At the heart of our Pastoral Care is 'respect'; we expect our pupils to have self-respect, to respect their environment, respect everyone within our community and to respect their school. All staff have high expectations of pupils at all times and always treat pupils with respect. This helps cultivate excellent relationships; a feature of Trent College life of which we are extremely proud.
Directly supporting our core values, our pastoral care nurtures the academic ability, the emotional competence, confidence and integrity of every individual and enables them to fully benefit from their time at Trent, so they are prepared for a full, successful and purposeful role in the wider community.
We operate a 'three tier school'; Lower School (Years 7 & 8), Main School (Years 9, 10 & 11) and the Sixth Form (Years 12 & 13). This system is designed around the needs of the specific year groups. The three tiers have their own tutor teams, their own bases, their own heads of year, their own support teams and their own member of our Senior Leadership Team responsible for tier organisation and management.
