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.
All Junior School pupils participated in a#somme100 commemoration today, organised by the History Department. Special thanks to Euan Berry, 10E, for the excellent idea!
As part of the PTFA’s fundraising efforts this term, Y8-11 pupils completed a sponsored walk on the morning of Friday, 17th June, from our existing school sites to the new Foyle College site on the Limavady Road, encouraging each pupil to raise £10 in sponsorship for their efforts. Amazingly, they managed to raise £4412!
The route, approved by the PSNI and chaperoned by the staff of Foyle College, involved walking from the Junior School Campus on the Northland Road towards to Senior School Campus, where Y11 pupils began their walk. Pupils proceeded down the Duncreggan Road, crossing at the Strand Road junction towards the Embankment’s pedestrianized quayside path. Crossing at the Peace Bridge, pupils walked through Ebrington Parade and St Columb’s Park, before having a well-deserved break in Foyle Arena, where refreshments were supplied.
Thank you for your generosity!
Congratulations to the two Yr8 teams who presented their poster presentations at Scifest today. Scifest Northwest and the ‘Big Bang near me’ program entertained the Yr8 STEM group with a Science show, MAD IT workshop and a series of exhibitions from local industry. There were over 40 projects presented at the competition. Both teams enjoyed the experience of talking to three sets of judges about the projects they have been working at during the term. One of our teams: Jakob Fielding, Molly Hannaway and Mary Demirova were placed 1st in their chosen category winning the ‘Discover Space Award’.
