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.
As part of their review of mental health services for children and young people, the NI Commissioner for Children and Young People (NICCY) would like all 11 – 21 year-olds to share their experiences of having sought or gained help in this area.
We have asked our pupils to go to www.niccy.org/SpeakYourMind to view the survey and complete it if they can.
Permission from parents/guardians is required, and further information is available at that address. The purpose of the survey is to help NICCY inform government on how to improve services.
