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.

Our brand new Sports Academies are designed to offer an extra opportunity for our pupils to participate in a particular sport during a structured session over a lunch time. These sessions are run by our Sports Captains and overseen by a member of the PE Department. We are hoping it will be a great way of offering more of a leadership opportunity to the Sports Captains as well as giving pupils an extra chance to show their skills.

The following academies are being run this term:


Wednesday Lunch Time

Year 7 Rugby


Thursday Lunch Time
