Paralympic medallist Tony Willis brought his 'golden' touch to a school's prize-giving ceremony on Monday.
Mr Willis was a welcome guest at St Peter's Church of England Middle School in Crimp Hill Road, Old Windsor.
Pupils listened intently as he described how he overcame the loss of a leg as a child to compete in several Paralympics. He is now associate headteacher at Windsor Boys' School in Maidenhead Road.
During the prize-giving evening 50 students from St Peter's saw a slideshow of photographs covering their four years at the school and enjoyed a recital by the school orchestra - conducted by Michael Grace, 13.
Rosie Fowler, 13, sang and played the keyboard. She said: "It was a great evening and I was amazed to be awarded the prize for art and creativity - I love music and art so it was a great honour."
Organiser of the evening was school governor Emma Wood.
