Foyle College Archive

Foyle College Archive


Five years have now passed since Dr Robert Montgomery and Mr Ken Gamble came into Duncreggan House and were admitted to the Headmaster’s study to inspect the contents of the secretaire and cabinet which contained school magazines going back many years.  Thus began the creation of the Foyle College Archive which is presently housed in a room in Dunseverick where a comprehensive collection of school records from Foyle College and the Londonderry Academical Institution for the boys, and Strand House School, Victoria College, St Lurach’s and Londonderry High School for the girls has been amassed.  There is also an extensive library of books and memorabilia which will be of interest to many past pupils and, indeed, their relatives and descendants.


Below is a list of some of the valuable books and artefacts which are among the material currently held in the archive which you may find interesting.   The work of uncovering and cataloguing this comprehensive collection continues with the archive team in school each Tuesday morning, and visitors are welcome by appointment.  Arrangements may be made by contacting the school and speaking to Mrs Jenny Galbraith, Principal’s PA.
