Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.

Attributed to Albert Einstein

A fish is specialised to swim superbly, but its ability to climb a tree is non-existent. It is inappropriate to judge the fish by focusing on a skill it does not possess.

Every child is unique and has an individual set of strengths and talents. The education system should not be one-size-fits-all. It should be designed to help each child build on their individual strengths whilst ensuring that a weakness in some area does not induce feelings of debilitating inferiority.

We are a large and dynamic Multi-Academy Trust based in Cornwall. We are responsible for nearly 7,000 children and young people across mid Cornwall from St Austell on the south coast to Newquay on the Atlantic coast.

We believe there is no limit to what every child can achieve, and that every child deserves the chance to fulfil their potential. We understand that the purpose of education is to help instil curiosity and a love for learning in every child so that they develop into young adults who contribute to humanity, follow their passions, and think for themselves. A CELT pupil leaves our family of academies with a purpose, and the confidence to fulfil that purpose.

At CELT we are transforming education for the 21st century. We want an education system where fish are no longer forced to climb trees.
