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.

Since Laura joined Argyle House School I am delighted with her academic progress and amazed at how easily she settled in. There are numerous additional clubs Laura enjoys and she thoroughly enjoys coming to school.

Her performance is fed back regularly and the teaching staff are approachable and on hand for any queries.

Mr and Mrs Benson

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.

I love to read my book and read the books in the book corner in school

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.

History of the school

Argyle House School was established in 1884 by its founder, Mr Hanna, M A Principal. He looked after the concerns of the school until he handed it over to his son James. James ran the school until he passed away in 1935.

After his death, his three daughters took over and relocated the school to number 12 Thornhill Park. They ran the school until the last sister passed away in 1967. Their niece, Mrs Davis, then took over the running of the school until it was put up for sale in 1968 and subsequently sold to Mr J N Johnson in 1969. Mr Johnson moved the school to its current location at 19 and 20 Thornhill Park.

The school saw many changes under the leadership of Mr Johnson and his wife. On his retirement, his son, Mr C Johnson, took over the school.

Further developments have since taken place, with extra facilities added and subjects introduced.
