So much going on in the PTC Activity Week!

From sumo wrestling to pitching tents, there's something for everyone on PTC's Activity Week 

The last week of term so many activities in school and away from the classroom got all our students up and active every day of the week!

On Monday Mr Cable and Mrs Ward took a group of Year 9 and 10 for an overnight stay at Dartmoor Zoo!
