The Blue Paper

The Blue Paper is Worth Society’s annual magazine that is published each December.  It is an A4, 76-page, full-colour publication comprising three core sections:

  • Worth Society Life (reviews of the Society’s numerous social and sporting events and charitable activities)
  • Life and Times of Worthians (full of news, photos and articles submitted by Worthians)
  • The Old Place (the latest news from the School and the Monastery)

All subscribing members of the Society will receive a hard copy in the post, whilst all other Worthians will receive an electronic link.  If you would like to purchase a hard copy this costs £5 plus postage from our On-Line Shop where you can pay safely and securely with a debit or credit card.

I have to say how impressed I have been with the latest edition of The Blue Paper.  It is excellently designed and full of good articles and great gossip.  I doubt there is a better alumni magazine around. Well done! Duncan Pring (Staff)


I have been meaning to drop you an e-mail ever since The Blue Paper came out.  It has been a great publication over the years but this year it is totally absorbing and highlights more than ever the amount of work done by the Committee and all those Worthians who do so much for others.  With so many stories of wonderful humanitiaran acts and selfless efforts given to help others, it is an absolute credit to the School.  It is a very humbling experience just reading it. Geraldine Butterworth
