Fortescue Medallists 2014: Madeleine Ralph
According to a colleague who has worked with our second winner, she is just fabulous!
First impressions can indicate a shy and quiet young lady. However, there is far more to this winner than meets the eye, as she has repeatedly demonstrated in some stunning drama performances at senior level.
Without drawing attention to herself over the years, she has taken major roles, acting and singing, in just about every big production we have done, from We will Rock You, an Inspector calls and Arcadia.
Phenomenally reliable, supportive, professional to the core, she organised her House Drama performances, and took on a leading role in House Song Rehearsals. Drama and performance is her thing, and she has a full colour for drama to show for it, but she has sung in the choir, been a reliable Deputy Head of House, prefect, and been the most diligent of pupils, maximising her abilities.
She has half colours for netball and was club captain last year. A capable sportswoman, she also represented the school at tennis. Progressing this autumn to Oxford Brookes to read Drama and English. A Fortescue Medal is awarded to Madeleine Ralph
