Welcome to the OCA
Catch up with lifelong friends
Be part of a vibrant community
From the OCA President, Clive Furness
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. Our mission is to make the OCA as inclusive and relevant to our members and the wider school community as possible.
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.
Stephen May (OC, OCA President 2015–2018)
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)
At Caterham, I always felt a sense of community and acceptance – I felt respected for my strengths.
Ashley Pollak (OC 1993–1998)
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)
