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.
Following on from our successful 'John Lewis' style advert last year that gained over 1,600 views, we are excited to launch our 2021 Christmas Advert called Finding Our Way. We would love it if this year's advert could beat our efforts from last year. Help us to reach as many people as possible by viewing the video through clicking the link here: Finding Our Way
Share this video with as many people as possible today and over the coming weeks. Can we reach double last year's total this year?
A REALLY big thank you to the Spanish band Big Mouthers for for giving us permission to use their excellent cover of My Way (available for purchase on Amazon).
