Alderman Peel High School pupils try sailing at Wells
Sailing has been added to the sporting curriculum at Alderman Peel High School.
An agreement between the Wells Harbour Martime Trust, Wells Sailing Club and Alderman Peel means students can enjoy sailing in Wells free of charge.
The trust funds instructors to deliver the training, which is assisted by volunteers from Wells Sailing Club, which also supplies safety vessels.
Sailing Club members also provided a barbecue for the first 16 11 to 14-year-old who took part, along with their parents when they return to dry land.
Alderman Peel head Alastair Ogle said: 'I would like to express, on behalf of the children a huge thank you to all the Wells Sailing Club volunteers in particular James Case and Chris Gibbs, the Wells Harbour Maritime Trust in particular Robert Smith and the school staff who also supported the events.'
