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.
Ten artistically talented year 8 pupils carried out a fantastic Art enrichment at Thomas Hardye school on Tuesday 4th July. They were introduced to, and experimented with various painting techniques. They then went onto create some amazing canvasses, all in one day! They worked alongside pupils from St.Osmunds Middle school and Dorchester Middle school, which was great interaction for them. It also gave a valuable taste of what Art at THS was like.
We wish to give our thanks to Mrs.Davies, the Head of Art at THS and all her staff who helped.
It was a brilliant experience and the pupils did St.Mary's proud!
