Join the Committee - The OCA

Join the Committee

The Old Caterhamians' Association (OCA) is an internationally-based network which crosses multiple professions and provides a wealth of fantastic opportunities, from building your professional portfolio and keeping fit playing the sports you love to getting involved with school drama, music and more.

The OCA is 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 OCA has launched the Caterham Connected social and professional networking platform giving all Caterhamians access to a huge community of Old Cats, parents and friends of the school, providing an invaluable professional resource to find mentoring and career opportunities. We’ve also sponsored the hugely successful Insight Evenings in London which to date have focused on medicine, law, sports and entrepreneurship and during lockdown have gone online providing a popular series of webinars, featuring many Old Cats on the panels. We’ve hosted OC reunions in Hong Kong, Malaysia, London and of course the termly OCA Day reunions with sporting events continue back at the School.

You can follow OC news and events on our social media channels: Facebook and LinkedIn networks as well as Twitter and Instagram. Omnia, our annual magazine, offers fascinating insights into the professions and lives of our Caterhamians.

There has never been a more exciting time to be a part of the OCA. We hope to continue to grow this energetic and vibrant network and are delighted to offer you the opportunity to get even more involved in our journey.

If you would like to get involved in the next exciting stage of the OCA’s development, come and join the committee! Fill in the form below to submit your application to the committee. Please note: any two Old Caterhamians can be your proposer and seconder.
