Welcome to the Old Caterhamians' Association (OCA), a vibrant, connected community offering a professional and social network for former students of Caterham School, a group proud to call itself the Old Cats.

I have good memories of Caterham School – it taught me two important lessons in life, resilience and spotting opportunities. The OCA has been a great way to get back in touch with old school friends, with events for everybody.

Mary Whenman (OC 1985–1987, OCA Vice President 2015–2018)

Caterham School certainly gives you a sense of service, and community spirit, and inspired me to take part in volunteer projects.

Samir Dwesar (OC 2001–2008)
Quote Marks

At Caterham, I always felt a sense of community and acceptance – I felt respected for my strengths.

Ashley Pollak (OC 1993–1998)
Quote Marks

Caterham gave me the work habits and academic qualifications to gain entry to medical school and then to succeed there. It fostered in me a sense of enquiry and of curiosity that helped me to pursue an academic career.

Professor Michael Aminoff (OC 1953–1959)

The camaraderie of the School shows you how to work well in a team, whilst simultaneously creating a base that makes you feel you can achieve anything you set your mind to.

Katie Atkin (OC 2002–2007)

The benefits of Caterham School exist well beyond our school years, we are a global community of Old Cats covering every sector and profession and all with friendship and mutual support at our core.
