Bath pupils inspired by London 2012 visit
Pupils of Bath Community Academy enjoyed a day of inspirational competition at the Paralympics on the final Friday of the festival of sport.
Every student in the Academy - formerly Culverhay - was offered the opportunity to attend the Games and watch a range of sports from wheelchair rugby to goalball.
The new Year 7 cohort were even treated to the track and field events in a packed Olympic Stadium.
The trip was funded in entirety by the Jack Webster Fund, a stream of money donated to the school by a local resident to provide opportunities for children.

Simon Scarborough, head of community at the Academy, said: "I felt it was imperative to organise the trip to give the boys and girls a once in a lifetime opportunity to witness something very special.
"All of the students were captivated by the day and the totally inspirational athletes who put on an amazing show."
Bath Community Academy has three communities titled Friendship, Respect and Excellence, which link in with the Olympic and Paralympic Values.
Principal Adam Williams said: "We highlighted the three Olympic values as key to developing a well rounded and vibrant school.
"It was clear to see the values on display in the Olympic Park, through not only the athletes but also the amazing Games Makers too."
There are busy times ahead for the new Academy, with its first Open Evening taking place on Tuesday, October 9.
