Welcome to the website of Foyle College, a Co-educational, Voluntary Grammar School which has been providing high quality education for the City of Londonderry and its surrounding area for almost 400 years.
We are delighted to be able to share with you something of the character and life of our school and the successes enjoyed by our pupils as we help them to grow academically, athletically and artistically enabling them to fulfil their potential both as members of the school community and as contributors to society.
Whether you are a current, former or prospective pupil, an interested parent or a member of the local community I hope that you will find our site informative and illustrative of the breadth and quality of education on offer at Foyle College.
Our Year 10 pupils are the proud recipients of the Most innovative and Creative Idea Award and The Best Overall Entry Award at the Seagate and STEM Aware ceremony, which was held in The Great Hall in Magee University.
Congratulations to all involved and a thanks to Michael Downey, Year 11, for making their video entries.
‘Learn To Earn' is an engaging and thought provoking Young Enterprise programme that challenges Year 11 pupils to make the connection between education, training and employment.
On Thursday 22nd June 2017, under the watchful eye of Karen Murphy, Young Enterprise Trainer, Year 11 pupils engaged in a variety of different activities which helped them understand how the learning and training opportunities available in school and the decisions they make now will influence their future careers and their happiness in later life.
Year 9 classes toured the Walls and visited St . Columb's Cathedral, the Tower Museum and the Siege Heroes museum as part of their study of the Siege of Derry. They also got to learn more about the foundation of our school as they toured the Foyle College exhibition and stood in Society Street carpark where Mathias Springham founded the Free School in 1617.
The Siege Trails were a very successful and fitting end to a busy year in the History Department! #Foyle400
