About Hereford Cathedral School

Hereford Cathedral School is a place where pupils thrive.  With an outstanding breadth of opportunity, first-class teaching and learning, and a warm and friendly ethos, HCS offers an unrivalled culture and community.  We provide a 3-18 education where lifelong friendships are made and where life-transforming opportunities are experienced. 

Hereford Cathedral School is one of the oldest schools in the country dating back to the seventh century and located around the beautiful Cathedral Close in the heart of this wonderful city.  Academic outcomes are strong and pupils achieve exceptionally good results in their public examinations and go onto some of the world’s leading universities. Emphasis is also put on shaping character and we want our pupils to demonstrate leadership and service in the communities in which they will live throughout their lives.

I really hope that you will have an opportunity to visit us and to see our wonderful School in action. I very much look forward to meeting you.
