Our Trust


We are delighted to announce the appointment of a Chief Executive Officer for our new Trust, Cornwall Education Learning Trust (CELT).

From September 2019, Lisa Mannall who previously worked for the Department of Education as the Regional Schools Commissioner for the South West, took the helm of CELT.

Lisa’s previous role with the DfE has enabled her, at a very senior level, to shape the educational landscape at a local, regional and national level.

Lisa also brings a wealth of experience beyond that role, as prior to the DfE position she was Executive Headteacher of Newquay’s Trenance Learning Academy, and then Chief Executive Officer of The Learning Academy Trust.

Lisa states, ‘I am delighted to be appointed as CELT’s first CEO and look forward to working with the school communities within the new Trust to continue and further develop the excellent work already being undertaken’.
