Argyle House School is an Independent school in North East England. It was founded in 1884. Though not in the original location, it is still located in the same area, Thornhill, and borders Ashbrooke about five minutes walk away from Sunderland city centre. It caters for pupils from ages 2 to 16, and at the time of the last inspection in 2015, had 112 boys and 80 girls in attendance.

The Headmaster is Christopher Johnson.


Originally founded by G.L. Hanna in 1884 in nearby Argyle Square, from which it got its name, it remained in the Hanna family until 1969 until it was sold to the current proprietor's father, Jeffrey Johnson. The current Headmaster purchased the school from his father on the latter's retirement in 2003 [1] The school, founded as a boys' school, has been non-selective and co-educational since 1994.
