The small size of the senior school enables staff to know each student's individual strengths and weaknesses. A major strength of the school is pastoral care as the staff get to know pupils from an early age in the primary department through to the end of the senior school.

You get to do fun things in the lessons and we go on lots of trips.

Nakeisha

The lessons in class at school are exciting. I think that school has lots of things to play with in the yard. I like all the activities. I think they are great as well as the trips. I like all the teachers I think that they sometimes are funny.

Having taught at Argyle House School for over 30 years, I have witnessed many changes. These have included a broader curriculum and improved facilities yet at its heart it still remains the same ethos and standards that were present all those years ago! A small school yes, but with even bigger aspirations.

Mr G Thompson

Argyle House School provides a broad curriculum in a friendly, safe environment for the pupils. All three sciences are taught separately and with enough depth to ensure pupils can carry their studies further if they wish. The emphasis is on practical work in the early years whilst in later years pupils are encouraged to develop their own ideas and investigations. The pupil’s attention and interest is engaged in the early years and this enables them to develop their full potential.

Mr Davies

PTA

The Association was formed in 1970 with a view to providing equipment and fixtures for the use of children, and to foster good relations between staff and parents.

The meetings are friendly and informal, and the interest and support of parents and new children will be most welcome.

The committee has worked closely with Mr Johnson and his staff, in discussion and provision of useful equipment for the school.

Since 1970, the PTA has funded many projects, ranging from the purchase of ten tents for School Camp to the acquisition of a new mini bus. If you wish to be informed about dates of future meetings etc, please inform the Head Teacher of your interest.

The parents who are members of the PTA welcome both your interest and support.
Events run through the year:

  • Christmas Fayre
  • Winter Ball – Parents only
  • Christmas Raffle
  • Easter Egg Raffle
  • Summer Fête
  • Halloween Ball – Children only
  • Prom – Teachers and children
