Parents' Welcome

Welcome to the Hereford Cathedral School community. We have been here a very long time, at least since 1384, but probably much earlier than that. So your child is about to join one of the oldest schools in the country, and a school which is unique in its history and location. This makes ‘Hereford Cathedral School’ a very special place with traditional values and a distinctive ethos. Yet the School is forward thinking, progressive and nationally recognised as one of the leading independent schools. We hope that your child will settle in quickly, and start to make their own unique contribution to this historic school.

We also hope that you too will feel welcome to play an active role in our community. I look forward to seeing you at various school events and please feel free to attend plays, concerts, sporting fixtures and more besides – the School calendar provides information on the wide variety of activities and events that take place each term. The PTA is very active and always pleased to hear from parents, they also run a series of social events for parents and families.

We seek to work closely with parents, recognising that education is about more than just academic success. I look forward to working with you in the future education of your child.

Paul Smith, Headmaster
