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, 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.

Bankes Archive Project

Sarah Appleton from Walford Mill and Elliott Bailey from the Dorset history Centre have been working with year 6 in their Art lessons. The pupils created pictogram postcards that could have been written to the Bankes family from 100 years ago. They created visual postcards telling members of the Bankes family what life is like in 2017. The postcards will be on display in an exhibition about the Bankes family called 'Threads of Narrative' at Walford Mill in March 2018.
