Pilgrim Pete was left in a quandary after he was offered a cream tea at Pool Academy recently.

Plymouth Argyle Football Club’s mascot visited the school during the academy’s open evening which saw scores of prospective parents and students pouring through the doors.

Children were delighted to see the mascot which had travelled all the way from Plymouth to help celebrate the recent partnership between the academy and the well-known football club.

All was going well until he was offered a cream tea for his supper.

He didn’t know which way he should apply the jam and cream. A few visiting parents were shocked to see the mascot standing outside the school with one scone sporting jam on top.

Mark Fuller, from Pool Academy, said: “It was an amazing experience to have Plymouth Argyle’s official club mascot, Pilgrim Pete, visit Pool Academy for its open evening. He was very confused with the Cornish cream tea situation. He was joined by coaches from Plymouth Argyle who delivered sessions in the school sports hall. Children and grown-ups were thrilled to meet Pete and hopefully he will visit us again one day.”

During Pool Academy’s open evening children got to see science experiments, play with musical instruments and have a go at baking.

One parent said: “The range and quality of facilities were most impressive and the atmosphere was one of a genuine feeling of a happy bunch of students.”
