New Lower School Boarding Option at Trent


We are delighted to announce that a new boarding house for pupils in Years 7 & 8 will be opening at Trent College in September 2012.

Our new Boarding House will have a family atmosphere in which all pupils feel happy, valued and confident that they can succeed in all they commit to. It will be a co-educational house with boarders encouraged to get on with everyone in the House, as any child would in their family home.

Our resident staff will be present at all times to ensure all pupils get the support and guidance they require so they are happy, busy and high achieving.

We will be proud to welcome our first group of Year 7 and 8 boarders into their new House in September 2012.

With the opening of Trent College Lower School Boarding House in September 2012, Year 7 and 8 students will have the opportunity to 'Flexi Board' at Trent.

Flexi boarding gives students the opportunity to board for 2 - 4 nights per week to coincide with regular sport, music, academic or extra-curricular activities and commitments.


You may consider flexi boarding because your child usually has a long journey into school and this will reduce their time travelling during the week, or to give your child the opportunity to see if they like boarding, or just because that’s how many nights away from home you feel comfortable with and is most appropriate for your family.

Work on the new boarding house is progressing rapidly and we are all very excited to see the end result!
