We would be delighted to welcome your family to visit Trent to get a feel for the wonderful opportunities available for your child.

We are currently welcoming applications for September 2019 across all year groups. Please contact us on 0115 8494950 to discuss places. Please do contact us at any time or visit the school on one of our Open Days throughout the year. 

Year 7 - 10 Entry

All prospective pupils are assessed on the basis of three key elements: the Trent College Entrance Examination, a confidential report supplied by an applicant's current school and a short interview with a member of staff. 

The assessments and interviews are our chance to get to know each child individually and ensure Trent College is the best place for them to excel. In terms of interview preparation, encourage your child to be prepared to talk through their interests, skills and hobbies, achievements and why they want to join the school community.

Children joining Trent College from The Elms will sit their entrance assessment whilst in Year 5.
