Welcome

 

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.

Yr8 & Yr9 Junior Science visits

Our recent annual Science visits to Nesswoods and Castlerock have ended the school year with more opportunities for some enquiry based learning. Estimating banded snail populations in the sand dunes of Castlerock;  investigating competition between bluebell growth and woodrush growth in Nesswoods; considering land and sea breezes at our coastlines; investigating Soil pH in the woods- these are some of the considerations made by Yr8 & 9 in the last weeks of term.  Click HERE for some more pictures…
