The School is in awe of Sixth Former, Madeleine Kavanagh, who ran this year’s London Marathon in an incredible 3 hours 56 minutes.

Maddie raised £3062 for Blind Veterans, having seen her Uncle Harry lose his sight and be helped by the charity. She trained extremely hard, but in a very quiet way. Throughout her journey around the 26 mile course, Maddie did not stop smiling and was an inspiration to all her Shelburne Housemates who got up at the crack of dawn to travel up to London to watch and support her. Maddie hopes to go to Durham to study geography.
