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.
Despite the best efforts of the weather, and after one day delay, the pupils and staff are finally on their way to Pencelli. We took a few pictures before they departed shortly before midday.
Update: Pupils have had a full day of activities today in their groups doing activities in the countryside surrounding Pencelli. It is still quite cold but pupils are enjoying the challenges. A few pictures have now come through. (Wednesday)
