Wish campaign Bath Community Academy
Improving security in the bike store is how Bath Community Academy would spend any money it receives in the Wish campaign.
The school has recently been improving security, a move which has seen the perimeter gates locked throughout the day.
This has meant that an area used to store bikes is no longer available.
Temporary provision has been made outside the main entrance, but it is not very secure and one bike has already been stolen.

The money would be used to buy a secure, covered shelter, to ensure bikes are safe and protected from the elements.
This will encourage more students to cycle to school, helping them to keep fit.
Head teacher Adam Williams said: "There has been a need to improve our security on site which has meant that the area once used by students to store their bikes is no longer available.
"Almost all of our students live in the local community and therefore walk to school daily.
"However we know that many more would ride their bikes if there was a secure and protected area within which to store them.
The academy, which caters for children aged up to 16, is committed to becoming an outstanding school, ensuring that all students reach their potential.
Previously known as Culverhay, the school was earmarked for closure but was saved after parents, pupils and teachers launched a fight for survival.
The school have pledged to match any funding secured through the Wish campaign.
Mr Williams said: "The installation of this secure facility would greatly improve the confidence and likelihood of students and staff to use their bikes to access the site.
"This would result in fewer cars approaching the site each day, reducing congestion."
