Will Fortnam, Newell Green High School, Withenshawe
Will, 14, has started GCSEs in Year 10 at Newell Green high school in Withenshawe, and hopes to go to Oxford or Cambridge university. He started archery four years ago after a family visit to a medieval castle. Apart from his coach, who also uses a wheelchair, he is the only disabled member of his club, the Bowmen of Bruntwood, in Cheadle. Will shoots in competitions most weekends, has competed twice in British junior national championships and in his county team, and hopes to be selected for the 2012 Paralympics in London.
