Vision & Values
Foyle College is a split-site school. The two campuses are at Springtown, Northland Road (which houses the junior school (ages 11–14), and Duncreggan (housing the senior school (ages 14–18)). As a grammar school it admits pupils based on academic selection. The school joined the Association for Quality Education (AQE)] which requires prospective pupils to take the AQE Common Entrance exam in order to be admitted to the college from 2010.
The official religious affiliation of the school is non-denominational.The school is preparing to leave its current locations at Northland Road and Duncreggan Road to move to a purpose built school in the Waterside suburb of Londonderry in the near future.

In the event of there being fewer applicants for admission with CEA marks than the school's Admissions Number, the above criteria will also be applied to applicants who did not sit the test. The Selectors reserve the right to require such supplementary evidence as it may determine to support or verify information on any Application Form/Transfer Form. The provision of false or incorrect information or the failure to provide information within the deadlines set by the school can result in the withdrawal of a place and the inability to offer a place on the part of the school as nominated on the applicant's Transfer Form.
When applying the above criteria, should the number of pupils who satisfy the requirements of any criterion exceed the number of places remaining, then the candidates will be listed by Date of Birth, eldest first, and admitted in that order. Note: Should two or more such applicants have the same Date of Birth, the initial letter of the surname in alphabetical order as it appears on the Birth Certificate will be used.
