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.

Mr and Mrs Shotton

I learn new things in school, it’s fun and I have lots of friends

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

You get to do fun things in the lessons and we go on lots of trips.

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

Parental Involvement

The school views a positive partnership between the staff and the parents as crucial to the education and happiness of the children. Parents are welcome to visit their child’s classroom at both the beginning and end of the school day. Parents also help on school outings and are a valuable asset to many aspects of school life.

An active and flourishing Parent Teacher Association (PTA) organise a range of events, including yearly Christmas Fayre and Summer Fêtes. The PTA also organises an annual dinner dance for the staff and parents and friends of current and former pupils. Parents are invited to come to school and give short talks in selected assemblies. Carol services and school plays are also open to parents.
