The School

St Richard's is a traditional, Roman Catholic school, welcoming children of all faiths.   We are an independent, co-educational day and boarding school for rising 3 to 13 year olds, set in 35 acres of beautiful Herefordshire countryside.

The lively and homely atmosphere, within the traditional rural setting of St Richard's, forms the foundation on which our children thrive; it is here that life-long friendships are kindled, good manners are intrinsically learnt, appreciation for the surroundings is engendered and Fundamental British Values are founded and nurtured within a Christian context.  Emphasis is placed not solely on learning but on enjoying and playing too; the creative aspects of the school and the wide variety of sport played, combined with the academic learning, create an environment where children find it stimulating and rewarding to work.   Here at St Richard’s children can be children while essentially benefitting from all that we offer them. 

The traditional character of St. Richard's, based on the concept of an extended family, is maintained by the headmaster who takes personal care of the pastoral welfare of each child.  The staffing policy ensures a blend of experience and continuity.  Many of the staff live alongside the children in the beautiful and spacious confines of Bredenbury Court.
