Sport Profiles

Hear from some of our alumni about their memories of sport at Caterham, what is meant to them and how sport plays a part in their lives today.

Harry McInley

OC 2004-2011

Harry came to Caterham as a cricketer with huge potential having played as a youngster at Reigate Priory CC and as a solid all-round ball player across all sports. A proud moment came in first form where Harry scored his first century, which marked his ambitions to represent the School’s first team for multiple years. In his Fourth Year, at age 14, Harry got his chance and marked his debut year with a 50 vs Hurstpierpoint and some tidy bowling performances. This led to a solid feature within the side for the next two years until Harry succumbed to a knee injury, which prevented the opportunity to captain the First XI side. Harry was proud to represent the school’s 1st XI in Rugby, Hockey and Cricket. Read more here.

Caz Buckland

(OC 2002-2009)

I loved sport at school, and captained the netball team every year I was there (except the first year we went up to full senior team!). That meant a huge amount to me, and I was lucky enough to have a really talented team of girls to play with who loved it as much as I did. We had Miss Lomas and Helen Sandiford as our coaches, both of whom were fantastic and knew how determined we were as a group to win. I loved lacrosse and tennis too, and think back now to how lucky we were to have such good facilities for everything! Read more here. Read more here.
