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

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

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.

Will

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!

Mr and Mrs Shaw

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.
