We have three sons at this school, each with different abilities. The essence of the school is the teaching staff and their ability to cater to the individual needs of our children, drawing on their strengths and supporting their weaknesses. The greatest testament, however, has to be what the boys said when we asked them what they thought of Argyle House School. They said that it was like a home from home, that the teachers were great fun and they enjoyed their lessons. The boys always come home happy and full of chat about their day, as parents we can’t ask for much more than that.

Mr and Mrs Shotton

Before teaching at Argyle House School I worked at several state comprehensive schools. This is the first school I have taught in where it is ‘cool’ to do well. Overall pupils here are a delight – they are polite, courteous, they want to learn and are keen to succeed.

Mrs Cahill

As a parent choosing a school is a major decision. The qualities we looked for were class size, academic results and commitment of the teachers. Argyle House School has all of these attributes and more which creates an excellent learning environment. The school is of a size which allows the pupils and teachers to know each other extremely well which establishes a family atmosphere. There are also numerous extra curricular activities which broadens the children’s outlook in an enjoyable and positive manner. We enrolled our three children in Argyle House experiencing both the primary and senior schools and have been extremely happy with the personal development and academic results achieved.

Mrs Scollen

From the moment we first considered sending our son to Argyle House School, all our questions were answered fully and openly. Although our son (Jamie) has only been at Argyle House School for 3 weeks, he already feels that he belongs!

The induction process for our son has been smooth, well planned, stress free and has undoubtedly enabled him to settle very quickly and happily into an unfamiliar environment.

Our son is seen and valued as an individual, whom we are sure will flourish emotionally, socially and academically, in a supportive environment. Now at Argyle House School our son is once again enthused to learn.

Our child is thriving and flourishing in a positive atmosphere, where children want to learn and are encouraged and supported to do so.

We have found everyone (children, office staff, teachers, caretaker and headmaster) to be friendly, approachable, welcoming and helpful.

Everyone matters at Argyle House School!

Our Ethos

Argyle House School has a strong family background. This results in a very safe and caring environment, one which is often reflected in a family itself. Feeling part of the Argyle House School family is emphasised in the way the children are taught and helped to develop into strong individual characters, who will be able to succeed in the world today.

Argyle House School emphasises that education should be fun, but that each child should work hard to achieve their best, reflected in the school’s motto “Work Conquers All", embracing Responsible, Reflective, Resourceful, Resilient and Reasoning. This is achieved through the dedication of the teaching staff, the small class sizes and the facilities on offer to the children.

And our Aims

Argyle House School aims to give the children the facilities of a large school, but keep the class sizes small. This offers each individual child the opportunity to learn and develop his/her abilities; academically, socially, emotionally and physically.
