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.
This morning, Stephen Savage from New Driver NI delivered a presentation aimed at 17 years olds who are about the begin driving.Stephen reminded the pupils of the pledge they should make to themselves each time they get behind the wheel, to always
- drive SLOW
- drive SOBER- SECURE all passengers
- put mobile devices on SILENT - have SHARP vision
This, coupled with real life accounts of tragic teenage road deaths, proved to be an informative and worthwhile experience. We thank Stephen for his time and the excellent resources he distributed to our pupils.
