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.
Year 8 STEM club has had a busy year with pupils completing projects ranging from dissecting owl pellets to making copper sulpate geodes. A seaweed workshop from the Lough’s Agency ensured all pupils understood the wide range of uses it had, even as a food ingredient and the local environmental officer will be conducting a bat workshop and mammal trail with pupils in June to mark the end of another STEM club year.
Pupils have had the opportunity to choose and complete many science based activities of interest to them which fall outside the practicals conducted during class time- making bath bombs, investigating hydrogels, making glues!… This term some STEM club members have extended their project work and we are looking forward to attending Scifest in June- watch this space! Looking forward to a new set of enthusiastic Yr8 pupils come September.
Congratulations to Charlie Norje 8D, Molly Hannaway 8D, David Donnell 9A and Katie House 9B
