Trust Lead’s Welcome


Lisa Mannal
CELT Trust Lead

Thank you for taking the time to find out more about Cornwall Education Learning Trust (CELT). We are a charitable trust consisting of four secondary schools, 7 primary schools and a junior school in mid Cornwall.

In CELT we believe a school trust has a single legal and moral purpose, which is an advance education for public benefit.

CELT is the result of a merger between two existing and successful trusts, Newquay Education Trust and Peninsular Learning Trust and is a DfE approved Academy Sponsor. Within CELT there is a thriving Teaching School, The Peninsular Teaching School Alliance, hosted at Penrice School in St Austell.

Celt is responsible for nearly 7000 young people and employs approximately 950 staff across mid Cornwall.

In September 2021 we will be opening a brand-new school, Newquay Primary Academy on the same site as Newquay Tretherras. Applications for places in Reception can be made at the end of this year through the Local Authority admissions process.

I hope you enjoy our website and please get in touch if you require any more information about us.

Kind Regards

Lisa Mannall

Trust Leader
