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.
Congratulations to our Class of 2017 pupil, Sophie Doherty, who has been awarded the prestigious Protégés of Peace Scholarship to study at The Lawrenceville School in September.
Jack Taylor, Class of 2015, was a previous recipient of the scholarship and we are delighted to strengthen our connection with Lawrenceville School and the Protégés of Peace scheme.
Foyle College’s Head Boy Adam McElhinney and Head Girl of Lumen Christi travelled to Áras an Uachtaráin in Dublin. There they met with the President of Ireland, Michael D Higgins, his wife Sabina and Royal Guests, Prince Charles and Camilla.
The President invited the pupils to the meeting with the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall to discuss their advocacy work as part of the ‘Amazing in Space’ peace initiative. As champions for the voice of youth, they organised a peace concert at the Eikon Centre Maze for over 4000 young people on the 21st September 2016, International Day of Peace
