An Olympic rower has opened a Worle academy's new reception.
James Cracknell visited Worle Community School, where he also provided tips to students who have sporting ambitions of their own.
Neville Coles, executive principal of the Priory Learning Trust which runs the school, said: “James Cracknell went down extremely well and was brilliant with the students.
“We are delighted to see such a fabulous reception now officially open for use.
“The fantastic work done by Mark Antoine as the new academy business manager at Worle is first rate – the site is now looking great.
“We aim next year to provide even better toilets and in the medium term to seek funding to further improve Worle sporting facilities.”
Mr Cracknell, who won two Olympic gold medals, is organising the Weston super Half Marathon to take place in the town on March 18.
