Before teaching at Argyle House School I worked at several state comprehensive schools. This is the first school I have taught in where it is ‘cool’ to do well. Overall pupils here are a delight – they are polite, courteous, they want to learn and are keen to succeed.

Mrs Cahill

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!

Mr and Mrs Shaw

We are delighted with the choice we made of Argyle House School for our two children. They are flourishing and the change in them is wonderful to see. The staff are all very approachable and the family atmosphere ensures any issues are overcome quickly and efficiently. As parents it is our priority to know our children are developing to their best and we have found that at Argyle House School.

Lynsey and John Rollins

Argyle House School has a lovely family atmosphere. It gives the children the confidence to tackle any part of school. We aim to provide an education that is tailored to each individual.

EYFS Teachers

The small size of the senior school enables staff to know each student's individual strengths and weaknesses. A major strength of the school is pastoral care as the staff get to know pupils from an early age in the primary department through to the end of the senior 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
  • Prom – Teachers and children
