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 over 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.

Open Evening 2022


In the interest of the safety of our Foyle Family - staff, current students and prospective pupils, parents and carers - our scheduled Open Evening on 6th January will be delivered virtually.

We recognise how important Open Evenings are in supporting pupils’ KS2-3 transition journeys and we always look forward to welcoming eager and smiling faces into our school to see and hear for themselves why “The Future is Foyle”; however, we are making every effort to ensure our Virtual Open Evening is an informative and interactive as possible.

We appreciate this will come as a disappointment to lots of young people, but promise to engage with them many, many times throughout the remainder of the academic year.
