We love sport at Hereford Cathedral School and are proud of what our pupils and expert coaches achieve on and off the pitch, the court, the field and the river.
However, sport to us is about more than just exercise and physical well-being. We believe it is a key learning environment which contributes enormously to a child’s overall development, both psychologically and socially. From teamwork, friendship and leadership to self-esteem and self-worth, sport plays a pivotal role. As such, sport plays a major role in school life here and we encourage everybody, whatever their ability, to take part and have a go.
We play rugby and netball in the Autumn; football, hockey, rowing and 7s rugby in the Spring; and cricket, indoor cricket, rounders and athletics in the Summer. We also offer swimming, cross-country, badminton, equestrian competitions and tennis. Pupils have the opportunity to represent the School in an extensive fixture list and also during tours against local, regional, national and international schools, and we have had great success at local, county and regional levels.
