Join us in running the Town and Gown!

The annual Oxford Town and Gown 10k run in support of Muscular Dystrophy UK is taking place on Sunday 8 May 2022. The College is encouraging alumni, students and staff to take part and are hoping to bring the College community together with a St Catz team. More details about this will follow in the new year.

To find out more and sign up to run, visit the Town and Gown website. If you are running, let the College know by emailing so we can keep track of everyone in the College community who’s taking part.


Join the Catz Golf Society

The St Catherine’s College Golfing Society is looking for additional college alumni to play in local inter collegiate golfing events in the spring and autumn. There are players with handicaps ranging from 5 to 25, but it’s not limited to either end of the scale!

There is also an email newsletter, Links, that is sent out to all in the Society giving an update on past results and future events. If you would like to find out more, or to receive the newsletter, please email Andrew Owen ( so you can be added to the mailing list.


Call for participants to take part in doctoral research

Message on behalf of Honor Morris, PhD students at King’s College London:

As part of my doctoral research at King’s College London I am exploring the experiences of working-class women in further and higher education. I am keen to speak to women who consider themselves to be from a working-class background who attended sites of further or higher education at any point between 1968 and 1983.

Participation in the project would take the form of an interview to explore the participant’s experiences alongside contextual information about their background in relation to the topic of education. I have already received ethical clearance for the interviews.

If you would like more information about becoming involved in the project please get in touch with me by email:
