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 over 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.
Happy World Book Day from Foyle College! This year, each Year 8 pupil created a character mask, depicting a fiction character on the mask side and a review of their chosen novel on the inside. A special well done to Darwyn, Jack and Jessica, whose masks were selected as winners!
It is safe to say our Year 12s loved ‘Blood Brothers’ at Millennium Forum Theatre & Conference Centre. Thank you to Mags from Education at the Forum for arranging an invaluable Q&A with the cast afterwards; Conaill Long and Nathan Fraser were fantastic interviewers! We have no doubt that the live production will have proved hugely beneficial to both our GCSE Drama and English Literature students.
Our Year 8 pupils are currently participating in the Irish News Young News Readers’ project, funded by our generous PTFA committee. The crossover Literacy and LLW unit of work allows our pupils to closely engage with current affairs, both locally and globally, and the language and presentational features used within print newspaper articles. 8B thoroughly enjoyed their interactive activities during LLW!
