Why The CELT?

Here at the Cornwall Education Learning Trust, our vast team of teachers and support staff work across 9 schools in the St Austell area to shape the future of thousands of children.
Our schools pool resources and experiences to provide the very best for our families.
Working for the Trust allows individuals to learn, to share and grow and gives all staff the opportunities to meet and work with a whole range of professionals in the world of education.

Why Cornwall?

Working in Cornwall is a different kind of life. It’s slower paced, thoughtful and beautiful.

The Land, The Air and The Sea

Cornwall is almost entirely surrounded by water. There are few counties in the UK where your morning commute could involve multiple colours of skies, sea views and countryside vistas. Cornwall is blessed with all three. The air in the West is fresh, the rolling green is breathtaking.

A place to grow

Working with children anywhere in the world is rewarding; working with children in Cornwall brings with it unique opportunities to grow. Young scientists spend days at the phenomenal Eden Project discovering ways in which to make the world a better place. Our young performers, writers and poets lose themselves at the Minack Theatre – nestled in the rocks with views of the Atlantic. Our Geographers are spoilt with hundreds of beaches and coastlines to explore and examine.

St Austell Bay

Our part of Cornwall is a gem of its own merit. St Austell sits at the foot of what is known locally as the clay country and the valley is admired from above by stunning hills and quarries. There’s world-class fishing to find in Mevagissey and stories to discover in the port of Charlestown, home of the BBC’s Poldark.

Cornwall is simply a brilliant place to work and grow and, when you’re in the business of shaping the next generation, there are few counties more diversely inspiring.
