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.

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.

Argyle House School is a friendly and academic environment where students learn, thrive and enjoy.

Mrs A Lynn

At Argyle House School we are small enough to know and care for each child individually whilst also providing a broad and stimulating curriculum and environment in which your child can grow and be supported throughout until they are ready to go into the world and sample all it has to offer them.

Mrs L Mcintosh

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.

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.
