Welcome

 

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.

The Class of 2020 hockey players

The Class of 2020 hockey players said their farewells today during an outdoor presentation in Ebrington Square.

Ellie Goodman handed over the 1st XI hockey captaincy for 2020/2021 to Rachel, and we also welcomed our 1st XI vice-captain for 2020/2021, Meabh.

We also bid farewell to our fabulous senior goalkeepers, Alex Dougherty and Ebony Leckey, and presented Special Awards for 2019/2020 to Ellie Goodman, Ebony Leckey, Beth O'Neill and Katie Torrens.

After 7 years of hockey at Foyle College, we wish the girls well as they embark on the next chapter of their academic and sporting lives.

Thank you for your commitment to school hockey, ladies!

Our weekly Doddle ‘Science Challenge’ quizzes continue for Year 8-10 pupils. We are encouraging pupils to complete quizzes each week to review their learning and winners will be posted on our Facebook page each week.

Excitingly, week 5’s quizzes are now available, and the pupil with the best average scores for weeks 1-5 quizzes, submitted before 12noon on Friday, will receive an Easter Egg in the post!
 
Also, another practical way for pupils to extend their interest and learning in Science at home has been highlighted by the BA Crest Award Science Scheme: www.crestawards.org The vast majority of experiments may be carried out using materials already available in the house and pupils can achieve a nationally recognised award for their efforts!
