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.

Inter House Competitions

Inter House Competitions

This year we have decided to add Inter House Competitions that have taken place over Monday and Tuesday lunch times. Every competition will be mixed and is open to everybody. Tutor groups have the responsibility of organising teams to participate in a league over a half term. These competitions are regularly refereed or umpired by pupils and are overseen by a member of the PE Department.


The first half term saw Year 5 and Year 7 battle it out in House Football Competitions and Year 6 and Year 8 compete in House Netball Competitions. Results to follow shortly!



This half term Year 5 and Year 7 will be involved in House Netball Competitions and Year 6 and Year 8 will move to Football Competitions. These will begin the week commencing 6th November!
