Welcome to St Mary's C.E. Middle School

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.

Last week, 22 students visited Budmouth to compete in the area athletics event. As always, at these athletics events, our students put on a show of commitment and enthusiasm, as a result of this we managed to get a number of students through to county!


Considering the minimal time we have had to prepare for this event I am hugely proud of the students and the PE Dept.


A great achievement was made by all!


Summer Term 2017


With the summer term approaching St Mary's would like to request that children bring sun cream, a sun cap and a water bottle along with their white PE kit please. We would like to take every precaution in protecting the children from the sun especially during their PE lessons.

Year 8 Basketball

Year 8 Basketball 1

The Year 8 basketball team took to the courts at St Osmund's where they approached the courts eager to win and slam dunk the competition. However, giant's would not even come close to describing St Osmund's team! St Mary’s ventured on and took on the battle of St Osmund’s and DMS. It was a tough challenge with both St Osmund's and DMS fighting hard to keep us out..... But the team fought back with spirit and determination which was admired by  parents from each middle school. The team won the battle to win the crowd and for the points but, unfortunately, the ball just did not reach the net on this occasion bur the team remain positive will re-build for the area tournament in January. A super effort team!
