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.

At Argyle House School there is a great sense of community. Teachers and pupils all know each other very well and the friendly and caring atmosphere makes the school a happy, enjoyable place to work.

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.
