The inspiration of establishing a Sokians Past Pupils Association had been in the minds of many Sokians living in the United Kingdom for a long time. However, despite the fact that there were many Sokians live in the UK who strives to form an Association for a long time, it was not happened until now. Sunil De Silva's determination to transform it in to a reality by creating a Facebook group for Dharmasoka College Past Pupils UK seems to bear fruits.

Sunil De Silva, Samantha De Silva , Shiyamin Mohamed and Jayamini De Silva had the motive and determination to embark on the formation of an Association with the support of another three Sokians namely Aruna de Silva and Deepa Ranjini. On 02nd of October 2010 at Newcatle upon Tyne Artist Jayamini de Silva’s ‘NETH’ Exhibition gave this Golden opportunity. Sokians opened their ‘Neth’ to give birth to Past Pupils Association UK at last. Association’s (DCPPA-UK) inaugural meeting was held at Jayamin's house in Newcastle founder members being Sunil, Samantha, Shiyamin, Aruna, Jayamini & Deepa . After a long but a worthwhile discussion, all consented to organize a First Sokians General meeting in Stoke On Trent where Samantha extended his generosity by sponsoring the event.

Dharmasoka Collage Past Pupils Association, United Kingdom (DCPPA-UK), is a voluntary benevolent association of the past pupils of Dharmasoka College, Ambalangoda in Sri Lanka now living in United Kingdom. The First General meeting of the Association was held on 22nd January 2011 at Stoke On Trent.

DCPPA-UK membership has decided re-brand the association in 2016 following its 5th AGM in 2015, which was unanimously approved by its members in the 6th AGM in 2016. Now the organisation is recognised as the 'Old Sokians, United Kingdom' or 'OS-UK' in the shorter form. Following this change the organisation has successfully applied for the Charitable Status in the United Kingdom with the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR).

Membership of OS-UK is open to all Sokians living in the United Kingdom and Europe.
