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.

The school means my life so far it teaches me a lot. I enjoy the playground especially the pirate ship. We like Art, PE and Science. We get taught Maths, English, Art, Geography and Science. There’s so much to do and I enjoy school.

I like going to this school because I think the teachers are lovely and the lessons are amazingly fun and educational.

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

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.

Before & After School Care

Before School Care

Children are supervised from 8:00am onwards by one of the teaching staff. At the moment there is no breakfast club, but we hope to have this in operation soon.

After School Care

Children are supervised in a late room up until 5.45pm, in here they can enjoy TV, Nintendo Wii and games or finish their homework with help on hand.
