Our Schools

Argyle House

Argyle House School has a strong family background. This results in a safe and caring environment, one which is often reflected in a family itself. Feeling part of the Argyle House School family is emphasised in the way the children are taught and helped to develop into strong individual characters, who will be able to succeed in the world today. We emphasise that education should be fun, but that each child should work hard to achieve their best, reflected in the school’s motto “Work Conquers All”, encouraging children to be: Responsible, Reflective, Resourceful, Resilient and Reasoning. This is achieved through the dedication of the teaching staff, the small class sizes and the facilities on offer to the children. Our aim is to give the children the facilities of a large school, but keep the class sizes small. This offers each individual child the opportunity to learn and develop his/her abilities; academically, socially, emotionally and physically.
