Hereford Cathedral


Follow the link to learn more about Hereford Cathedral's programme of events and services which celebrate the 700th anniversary of the canonisation of St Thomas Cantilupe.

'St Thomas Cantilupe was Bishop of Hereford from 1275 until his death in 1282. His shrine is located in the north transept of Hereford Cathedral and is still an important pilgrimage destination. He also served as Chancellor of Oxford University and was involved in high-level politics as the Lord Chancellor of England.'

We have led the virtual Christingle service at the Cathedral along with taking part in the Donkey Service. Our choir has led a recording of Christmas songs with the Aracdia choir.





St Peter's Church


Each week Rev'd Andy Morgan or Heather Martin visit our school to share teachings from the Gospel. The children are involved in helping to bring the Bible stories to life and are able to understand how our school values are underpinned by these teachings. Find out more about our zoom assemblies on the school's video resource centre.


All Saints Church and Holy Trinity Church


Rev'd Hulse and members of the school staff have reformed links with All Saints Church. Members of the church community come and read with the children in our school. Together, we think about what being church school means to us, how we can work together and how we want to lead our collective worship.

Children from St Thomas Cantilupe take part in Choir Church along with those from other Hereford city schools and led Evensong at Holy Trinity. 


Hereford Hospital 


Many of our families work in or have links with the hospital Together, we work to ensure that families are welcomed, information is shared in a clear way and that children settle quickly and easily into school life. That ongoing commitment to community links and development is central to what we do and who we are.


Hereford city centre


Being situated in the historic city of Hereford gives the children many opportunities and we make the most of them. We prioritise walking in our city, to reduce our carbon footprint and to help the children to learn more about where they live. From walks to the river, picnic lunches on the Cathedral Green, walking to swimming lessons, making links with the Courtyard Theatre, local supermarkets and businesses as well as with NMITE we ensure that children at St Thomas understand where they live and flourish within it. 

Rev'd Swatteridge from St Peter's church has shared these great videos with us on the theme of love. They go live on the church's YouTube channel at 9am each Saturday. We hope that you enjoy them. Thank you Rev'd Swatteridge.
