Boarding at Trent College means access to a vibrant community of over 130 students from 20 different countries.

Life in our boarding houses has a relaxed and homely feel, with a Housemaster or Housemistress in residence throughout the entire week and responsible for the management of each house.  There is also a Matron in each house who overseas the welfare of all boarders. 

We want our boarders to enjoy their time at Trent College and to feel supported in their studies and refreshed by their activities. Boarders are able to enjoy our 45-acre campus (which is fully enclosed with 24-hour security) and have easy access to state-of-the-art academic resources, tutors, dedicated study time as well as sports and social facilities. 

Full boarders also benefit from recreational activities at the weekends – from cinema visits, quiz nights, ice skating, and ten pin bowling to trips to major UK attractions such as theme parks and national and cultural visitor centres.

Types of Boarding

Pupils board at Trent College from Year 7 all the way through to Year 13 creating a family feel to our boarding community. Pupils can board with us in a number of ways dependant on family circumstances:

  • Full Boarder: Pupils live at Trent 7 days per week during term time, only going home to parents or guardians for exeats, holidays and other special occasions.
  • Weekly Boarder: Pupils live at Trent from Sunday evening (or Monday morning) going home at weekends after Saturday school/commitments. Lower School boarders are free to leave after lessons on a Friday.
  • Flexible Boarder: Space permitting, pupils may elect to spend a minimum of two evenings and a maximum of four evenings per week as boarders - the selected evenings must be the same each week.
