Trent College is a UK boarding school that was established in 1868. Today, we are home to around 130 boarders from the ages of 11 to 18 who reside within one of our four houses on our 45-acre campus environment. 

Our boarding school is located close to Nottingham and Derby, providing a great central location for those looking to board in the Midlands, as well as offering superb access to transportation networks and airports for international boarders looking for the right boarding school in England.

We understand how important it is to find the best boarding school for your child and to choose a boarding style that suits your family.  Therefore, we offer flexible solutions to meet different needs, from full and weekly boarding to flexi boarding (depending on availability). 

Boarding Principles and Practice

Why choose boarding at Trent College?
Our students tell us they gain these benefits from living in our boarding houses:

  • Less travelling time and more time for work and leisure
  • Care and warmth from staff
  • New friends
  • An appreciation of other cultures
  • (For Sixth Form boarders) a step towards the independence they will have at university or in future life.

Boarding develops confidence, independence, social skills, positive thinking, respect for others and a sense of responsibility for the welfare of the community.

Our extensive grounds offer the space, beauty and scope for recreation; the boarding houses complement that with warmth, care and a place that feels like home.
