Reigning Miss World Mireia Lalaguna & Miss World CEO Julia Morley dropped in on Brent Knoll recently where they witnessed the progress the school has made since their last visit, and gave cupcakes out to all the students! Arriving at lunchtime, the Miss World delegation was greeted by Headteacher Jon Sharpe, who presented Mireia and Julia with flowers before taking them on a tour of the new school. Although Mireia is the 4th Miss World to visit the school, she was the first to see the new building.
Visiting every classroom, Miss World met with all the students, handing out special handmade Miss World cupcakes and autographs. Mireia was also introduced to the challenges the teachers face, and the fantastic atmosphere in the school.

“I really learned something today” said Mireia, on reflection of her visit. “The incredible techniques used to improve the learning experience is truly amazing. It is often hard to appreciate someone elses problems, but this school does it with style, and the children look like they enjoy it a lot too. It makes me feel so happy to see places like this, and I am glad that the Miss World Organisation continues to support such places.”
Julia Morley was keen to hear about the future for Brent Knoll and after seeing a wish list of developments announced that she would pledge further ‘Beauty with a Purpose’ funds. Five pieces of playground equipment will be installed over the summer using ‘Beauty with a Purpose’ donations, specialist equipment including a sound wall, scented organ pillars and an echo game.
Speaking about the visit, Julia Morley said “Brent Knoll School have consistently shown that their commitment to education is of the very highest level. We always love to visit and it fills our hearts with joy to see the development of these kids. Because of this we want to continue to see this school thrive and cannot wait to see this playground filled!”
