You can read past editions of Torch and its predecessors from the last hundred years below.
Originally called The Wath Magazine, the school publication was renamed The Wathonian in 1930. World War II reduced its frequency from termly to annually, but it was still going strong in the 1970s and was briefly revived in the 1980s and again in the early 1990s. The Wath Chronicle newspaper launched in 1992 and ran for a decade, later alongside Connexions magazine. The mid-2000s introduced In Touch, which evolved into The Torch newspaper in 2014. Torch was relaunched as a magazine in 2022.
