A Hinchley Wood Stagecoach student has enjoyed a piece of Disney magic after being selected to star in a film’s music video.

Khanyi Thobela, 10, was chosen from 300 youngsters to appear in the video for the title song of Disney’s the Pirarte Fairy, performed by Natasha Bedingfield.

Khanyi and four other Stagecoach students were styled into fairies and pirates before learning a dance routine for the song.

Melanie Edwards, principal of Stagecoach Hinchley Wood, said: "Khanyi is a model student with a natural talent for performing arts, she lights up a room when she starts to perform."
