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

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

I like going to this school because I think the teachers are lovely and the lessons are amazingly fun and educational.

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.

PTA

The Association was formed in 1970 with a view to providing equipment and fixtures for the use of children, and to foster good relations between staff and parents.

The meetings are friendly and informal, and the interest and support of parents and new children will be most welcome.

The committee has worked closely with Mr Johnson and his staff, in discussion and provision of useful equipment for the school.

Since 1970, the PTA has funded many projects, ranging from the purchase of ten tents for School Camp to the acquisition of a new mini bus. If you wish to be informed about dates of future meetings etc, please inform the Head Teacher of your interest.

The parents who are members of the PTA welcome both your interest and support.
Events run through the year:

  • Christmas Fayre
  • Winter Ball – Parents only
  • Christmas Raffle
  • Easter Egg Raffle
  • Summer Fête
  • Halloween Ball – Children only
