OHs will be only too well aware that your School has had a long and distinguished history spanning over 600 years. Starting as a very small Song School attached to the Cathedral, it was re-founded by Bishop Gilbert towards the end of the 14th century and has continued to educate young people of Herefordshire and beyond ever since. Today it shines as a beacon of academic, creative and sporting excellence, occupying various buildings surrounding the Cathedral, its Close and Cloisters.
The historic and inspirational setting is a constant reminder of the School’s foundations and role within the wider community. Over thecenturies a common purpose has emerged that has enabled HCS to adapt and flourish through thick and thin. The Governors are determined therefore that the School should continue to develop, whilst not losing sight of the core values and principles that have stood Hereford Cathedral School in such good stead throughout its history.
Through prudent financial management coupled with generous donations from benefactors over the last century, your former school has been able to keep pace with the changing educational landscape. HCS has entered the 21st century with some major improvements to its premises and facilities coupled with some remarkable academic results.
Meanwhile, to help meet the cost of tuition fees that are payable these days, a special Bursary Fund was recently introduced.
