£23.5m Londonderry school officially opened

As reported by the BBC, Northern Ireland’s newest state-of-the-art school has now been officially opened

Londonderry’s new £23.5m school has been officially opened by Princess Anne.

Foyle College moved to the multi-million pound facility last year, but early this week it gave the princess a tour before a plaque was unveiled to commemorate the opening.

Principal of the school, Patrick Allen, said the new campus meant teachers and students have the “modern facilities to match their enthusiasm and passion for learning and teaching”.

“With the benefit of the facilities that are now available, I am confident that the school will go from strength to strength in the coming years,” he said.

Princess Anne spoke with some of the schools’ rising sports talent and its Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme leaders.

Foyle College was founded by the merchant Taylor Mathias Springham in 1617, and was always located on the west bank of the city until now.
