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, acceptance and kindness.
We look to inspire our school community and give them the tools to thrive in the modern world, summed up by our school aim of 'Inspire today to shape tomorrow'. 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.
The school is proud to have really strong links with our local village church, St. Mary's in Puddletown. Our local vicar is Sarah Hillman and she is a regular visitor to the school as well as being a school governor. She is activly involved in RE lessons and leads the clergy team in delivering regular Acts Of Worship to our pupils. She also leads our school worship group who help put together our annual refelection day.
