Thank you for visiting the website for St. Mary's C.E. Middle School. We are a 9-13 middle school situated on the outskirts of Puddletown, a small village in the beautiful Dorset countryside. We are a church school with an ethos built on the core Christian values of respect, forgiveness, justice, uniqueness, equality and acceptance.
Our aim is to give every pupil the chance to achieve their God given potential in all areas of their life and we are proud to have been assessed as an outstanding church school in our last two Church of England inspections. We expect the highest standards in both academic work and behaviour and we place our children at the centre of everything we do.
The pupils, staff and governors are very proud of our school and we hope that this website will allow you to see why. We look forward to having the opportunity to meet you in person.

Hello, I was asked to join the governing body at the summer fair, before Jess had started. Being an enthusiastic kind of person, I agreed.
This academic year I took over as Chair. My role is to work with the other governors, staff, children and the wider community to ensure the school and children continue to develop and grow.
I have two children who both attend St Marys Middle School, a husband, Kevin.
I work for BCHA in Bournemouth as a Business Manager and spend most weeks visiting sites in Exeter, Plymouth or Reading.
