Thomas Clarkson Academy was named a champion school and awarded £1,000 of lottery funding to help get young people more involved with their local communities.
Get Set for Community Action was set up in 2012 based on Olympic values: friendship, excellence and respect, and Paralympic values: courage, determination, equality and inspiration.
The plan is to work with a local primary school to create a disability sports event. The project will be led by the TCA Young Ambassadors.
Kirstie Smith, director of sport at the Brooke Weston Trust and TCA PE teacher, and young ambassadors Alex Bishop and Kelly McManus went to the launch event held at Aston Villa Football Club, Birmingham.
The students met sprinter Christian Malcolm and Paralympic rower David White.
