2011 : 30-Year Reunion Review

30-Year Reunion for the Class of 1986-91 Having read of the huge success of the 1980 Leavers’ 30-Year Reunion in the last issue of The Blue Paper, we knew that our time had now arrived and the pressure was on! Step forward John Bennett, former Rutherford boy, who bravely volunteered to host and organise the […]

2011 : 20-Year Reunion Review

20-Year Reunion for the Class of 1986-91 There were a few who questioned my motivations for organising the 1991 Leavers’ 20-year reunion, which was held at The Courthouse Modern, a central London hotel on Saturday 2nd July 2011.  And I’ve got to come clean; they were more selfish than altruistic ones. “You were the most […]

2011 : 10-Year Reunion Review

10-Year Reunion for the Class of 1996-2001 10 years since leaving Worth – and I have another ‘blue paper’ to write; although refreshingly not as punishment for dissent in Mr Smith’s maths class. With some gentle encouragement from Olivia, 25 Worthians convened for supper in central London on Saturday 20th August 2011. Events were largely […]

2011 : Drinks for Andrew Taylor Review

2012 : Worthian Girls’ Reunion Review

2012 Worthian Girls’ Reunion We forged our ways across the country one cold January evening, revisiting those same windy roads which used to lead us to school every morning, week or term.  Whether as day girls who took the route every day, or as boarders who took it less frequently, for all of us the […]

2012 : City Lunch Review

2012 City Lunch I remember sitting in the Officers Mess at 10 Stone Buildings back in 2002 – brandishing a list of 30 Worthians who had ‘promised’ to attend our pilot WOBS City Lunch – just waiting to see if anyone would actually turn up!  These 30 had not proved easy to pin down but […]

2007 : Recent 2006 Leavers’ Reunion Review

2007 : Recent Leavers’ Reunion Since leaving Worth in July 2006, when we spread to all parts of the globe, the 2006 leavers have remained in regular contact for three main reasons – our extremely sociable nature, the WOBS’ network and, last but by no means least, facebook!  Easter and Summer 2007 saw two reunions at one […]

2008 : 10-Year Reunion Review

1998 Leavers’ 10-Year Reunion When Worth Society suggested a reunion for 1998 Leavers’, they naturally asked for  Richard Gairdner’s assistance, who enlisted the help of myself and Ollie Barnett.  With that not proving quite enough of a draw – we entered the IT space age in a way that would have made Father Christopher proud!  […]

2008 : Recent Leavers’ Reunion Review

2007 Leavers’ Recent Leavers’ Reunion Due to the miracle of social networking that is Facebook, and Olivia Henley’s efforts, early September 2008 saw a good cohort of Worthians from the 2007 crop gathered at The Antelope pub in the heart ofLondonfor their inaugural reunion. I always felt that ours was an excellent year – ‘naughty […]

2008 : City Lunch Review

2008 City Lunch Review 28th February 2008 went into my diary as just ‘WOBS Lunch’ which caused some concern among my work colleagues as they speculated as to what this stood for.  Having left Worth in ’76 (that’s 1976…) and having had embarrassingly little to do with the school that coaxed me through O’s, A’s […]

2011 : The Bluffers’ Challenge Review

The Bluffers’ Challenge! The third Worthian “Call My Bluff” wine tasting wine broke new ground this year whilst maintaining the deep-rooted traditions of the previous two.  So, what was new? Well, Ben Babington managed to find us a new venue – the Prince Albert Pub on the Albert Bridge Road in Battersea.  With a private bar upstairs […]

2011 : Worthian Girls’ Inaugural Reunion Review

The 2011 Worthian Girls’ Inaugural Reunion The start of 2011 was greeted with the sound of excited screeching as 17 of the original 32 girls returned to enjoy a meal in the Cowdray Room. Having been treated to regular ladies’ dinners whilst at Worth, it soon felt completely natural to be enjoying school food and wine with […]

2011 : City Lunch Review

2011 City Lunch It’s certainly a truism that where there’s good food and wine, you’re bound to find Worthians! And so it was on a sunny afternoon in February 2011, that a swarm of Worthians descended, as bees to a honey pot, on The Terrace Room at the Bleeding Heart Restaurant, just off Hatton Garden, […]

2010 : 10-Year Reunion Review

10-Year Reunion for the Class of 1995-2000  Whilst we were relatively few in number, ours proved to be quite a formidable gathering in the private room of the Antelope pub, off Sloane Square. For some it was the first time in a decade that they had set eyes on those present – and yet still […]

2010 : 20-Year Reunion Review

20-Year reunion for the Class of 1985-90 The memories came flooding back as soon as we arrived at Three Bridges where we were met by two Barkers taxis (sadly there was no Mrs Blake there to meet us but a 50-year old taxi driver known as ‘Hotty’!). At first glance, the School seemed more or […]

2010 : 30-Year Reunion Review

2010 – 30-Year Reunion for the Class of 1975-80  Well I will be honest – as I walked out of the School in July 1980 I did not look back and, as I had the whole of the rest of my life in front of me (still do actually!), I set off to find out […]

2010 : 40-Year Reunion Review

40-Year Reunion for the Class of 1964-69  Was it some macabre fascination that attracted 14 of us to attend a Reunion organised by Des Calnan and James Wheeler? After all, most of us had not seen each other for 40 years and Father Time was not going to turn a blind eye to deterioration – […]

2010 : Inaugural Recent Leavers’ Networking Review

2010 Inaugural Worthians Recent Leavers’ Networking Evening The inaugural Worthians Recent Leavers’ Networking Evening took place on Wednesday 22nd September 2010 at the Samuel Pepys Bar in the City.  It was an informal gathering aimed at bringing together the bright minds of Worthians already established in the City, with recent School and University leavers needing […]

2010 : City Lunch Review

2010 City Lunch I was particularly struck as I arrived at the Bleeding Heart Restaurant, at the sense of history that pervades the whole place.  It is not at all difficult to believe that a murder or three took place.  Indeed, Lady Hatton copped it here, in the 17th Century, for being rather over-familiar with […]

2009 :10-Year Reunion Review

10-Year Reunion for the Class of 1994-99 Ten years have certainly passed unbelievably quickly and we haven’t changed very much – other than acquiring jobs, wives, houses and all those other things that awaited us when we left Worth as fresh-faced 18 year olds in 1999. It came as an unwelcome surprise when I discovered […]

2009 : 20-Year Reunion Review

20-Year Reunion for the Class of 1984-89 The 20-year reunion for Worthians who left in 1988 was a dinner held on Thursday 8th October 2009 at Franco’s, Jermyn Street, London SW1. If you were a fly on the wall you could be forgiven for thinking that this was a meeting of heavyweight wrestlers (long past their […]

2009 : 30-Year Reunion Review

30-Year Reunion for the Class of 1974-79 It was the year Margaret Thatcher came to power; the year Trivial Pursuits was invented; the year, in fact, when nudists were first allowed on Brighton Beach!  Plus, of course, it was the year that Pink Floyd came out with “We don’t need no education”.

2009 : 1959 Founder Members 50-Year Reunion Review

1959 Founder Members 50-Year Reunion The big day finally arrived – Tuesday 21st September 2009. Worth – magnificent in late summer sunshine – is still approached by the same broad drive that we all took on another sunny day 50 years ago (and with similar trepidation) to begin the work of building a new senior […]

2008 :10 year reunion Review

The Class of 1994-98 Leavers’ 10-Year Reunion When Worth Society suggested a reunion for 1998 Leavers’, they naturally asked for  Richard Gairdner’s assistance, who enlisted the help of myself and Ollie Barnett.  With that not proving quite enough of a draw – we entered the IT space age in a way that would have made […]

2008 : Wine Tasting Review

Sniffing Out the Bluffers This was the second such event organised by Worth Society – although the first under its new name.  And if the audience was not confused at this point they certainly would be by the end of the evening!  Such was the fun had by all. The format is very simple – the […]

2008 : City Lunch Review

2008 City Lunch John Griffith (B’76) – February 2008 28th February 2008 went into my diary as simply ‘WOBS Lunch’ which caused some concern among my work colleagues as they speculated as to what this stood for.  Having left Worth in ’76 (that’s 1976…) and having had embarrassingly little to do with the school that coaxed […]

2008 : The Australian Chapter Review

The Australian Chapter It is almost ten years ago now that a WOBS (as Worthians were called then) dinner was held in Sydney to coincide with a Worth rugby tour and theatrical tour of Australia.  The Joeys (St Josephs) score board revealed that a team of elegantly proportioned and porcelain coloured ‘poms’ was certainly no […]
