Beauty Queen closes Beautiful Is... week

Stephanie Casser-Thurgood, who was recently crowned Miss Durham, visited the academy on Friday 24 April as part of  Beautiful Is... week which was being run by the Friendly Development Charity.

The positive body image road show is thought to be the first of its kind in the region and aimed to increase students’ confidence in their own bodies through assemblies and workshops.

Stephanie, a health care worker, who attended Stanley School of Technology before the academy was formed, said: “I gave a talk to tell people it is not just about being beautiful on the outside, you have also go to be beautiful on the inside."
