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.
HUGE congratulations to Katie who has won 2nd place in the Sloane McClay Awards 2019 based on her combined marks in GCSE Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. Outstanding!
Congratulations to Jessica in Year 8, Josie in Year 9 and Abie in Year 10, pictured with Mr. Guthrie, Headmaster of Ebrington Primary, who announced them as winners of the Christmas tree decorating competition. Well done to all three girls for their hard work! They each won a £15 Foyleside voucher for their efforts.
On 22nd November 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. At the U.S. Naval Base in Londonderry, where our school now stands, Frank Ekstrom raised the American flag as a mark of respect after the assassination.
Today Frank returned to raise the flag with the help of some of our Year 14 History students and members of the School Archive Team. It was an honour to welcome Frank to Foyle College today and to hear his recollections of his time in Londonderry.
