We are delighted to be able to formally announce that Pondhu Primary School in St Austell will join our family of academies this September.

Pondhu’s Governing Body has given careful consideration to the decision, including getting expert external advice, and has concluded that this is definitely the best step forward for the school.

Debbie Tregellas, Headteacher of Pondhu Primary School, said “Our ethos and values at Pondhu are a great fit with those of CELT and we are fully engaged with the CELT mission of learning together to help every child achieve more. We believe that joining a multi-academy trust like CELT, which has a clear focus on working as a partnership of equals, will give Pondhu the backup and support to continue our positive direction of improvement and make sure our progress continues strongly in the right direction. It will further strengthen our governance and leadership capacity, help us to make sure that we are setting the right strategic direction, and give our excellent team of staff more opportunities and support to develop their careers within the CELT family of academies in the years ahead.”
