As we approach Trent College’s 150th anniversary in 2018, and The Elms’ 20th anniversary a year later, we can look back with tremendous pride at the way our schools have grown and evolved.
To continue our success we have to strive to improve. So the next chapter in our development means embarking on an ambitious programme of growth and development to propel us forward. That means exploring innovative new ways to equip our pupils with the life skills to navigate this rapidly evolving world.
We want to inspire future generations of talented young people to fulfil their potential and be the very best they can be.
Below is a summary of the five-year strategy, vision, ethos and aims which will guide us as we develop over the next few years.

We give the highest priority to the quality of our academic provision. We are also proud of our reputation for delivering a fully rounded curriculum, with sport, music, art and drama all being important elements of an education at Trent and The Elms.
