Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - ON THE RECORD -

A school set up to teach blind chil­dren in Worces­ter is search­ing for the de­scen­dants of past stu­dents to help com­mem­o­rate its 150th birth­day next year.

Founded by two vi­cars as The Col­lege For The Blind Sons of Gen­tle­men in 1866, New Col­lege Worces­ter moved to its present site on Whit­ting­ton Road in 1902, later merg­ing with its sis­ter school for girls in Chor­ley­wood in 1987.

The col­lege’s For­mer Stu­dents As­so­ci­a­tion is keen to hear any mem­o­ries that peo­ple may have about the school, and to col­lect mem­o­ra­bilia from those whose an­ces­tors were pupils, whether blind or par­tially sighted. They would also like to gather in­for­ma­tion about teach­ers and other mem­bers of staff.

If you can help, write to David Scott, 38 Brocks Hill Drive, Oadby LE2 5RD. You can also phone 0116 271 5847 or email david972s­cott@ bt­in­ter­

Do you have an an­ces­tor who at­tended New Col­lege Worces­ter?
