The Canford School community is shocked and saddened by the news of the death of former pupil Charlotte (Lottie) Fullerton during a holiday in Nepal.
Lottie joined Canford as a scholar in the Sixth Form from St Catherine’s, Bramley and was an exemplary pupil both inside and outside the classroom. An A* student, it was no surprise to either her teachers or her peers that she was awarded a place to read Medicine at Jesus College, Oxford. In sport she represented the school at both Lacrosse and Squash and developed a keen interest in Real Tennis. Described in her university application as ‘one of the most talented, focused pupils we have had’, she was dedicated to pursuing a career in Medicine and developed her passion through community work locally in a care home and in a centre for children with disabilities, and abroad as part of a school partnership trip to an orphanage in Argentina.
John Lever, Canford’s Headmaster during Lottie’s time at the school, remembers her with fondness and admiration, while Lottie’s Housemistress Marianne Marns wrote:
“Lottie was an exemplary student, bright, fun, warm, humble in success and invariably polite. Staff and school friends will cherish their memories of her. My favourites include the many house competitions - plus snowball fights against the boys’ houses after prep - for which she readily volunteered (and invariably won!).”
Ben Vessey, Canford Headmaster, said:
"On behalf of the entire school, I would like to express our great sadness on learning the news of the untimely death of one of our former pupils, Lottie Fullerton. She was such a talented young woman who cared for others and had such an important career in the medical profession ahead of her. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends at this difficult time.”
