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

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!

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

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

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.

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.
