Archive Magazine and Photographs

Archive Magazine and Photographs – An Appeal


The Archive Department of the school has an extensive collection of photographs which have been recorded in digital form and are available to members and friends of the school. The list includes, Rugby, Cricket, Hockey, Prefects, Principals, Chairs of the Board of Governors, Presidents of the FPA, OBA, OGA, Buildings and Furnishings, Famous Former Pupils, Drama and Music Productions and many other school activities. The earliest team photograph dates from 1878 (LAI Rugby).

However, there are significant gaps in our records, and we would appeal to members to have a look in their attics etc for any of the missing materials.

In particular we are interested in any pictures of the LHS Prefects Council, and the sports teams listed below.

Delay measures

Dear Former Pupil

Unfortunately, as the Government starts to instigate their "delay measures" to combat the corona virus pandemic the Foyle College FPA Committee has had to take the decision to cancel the London Dinner and postpone the Londonderry Lunch.
For those who have already paid for the London Dinner monies can be refunded by making contact with the School Bursar. Please use this email address to do this and our preferred means of repayment will be by BACS - your bank details will be required to make this transaction.
It is hoped that we will be able to run the Londonderry Lunch in the early summer; the monies already paid towards this lunch will be retained towards the rearranged function or if preferred returned on request to the School Bursar.  More detail to follow on the rearranged function.
