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.

Chefs in the Making!!

Congratulations to Y5’s today who worked tirelessly on their final breakfast practical (assessed). You should all feel very proud of your hard work over the past 11 weeks and really pleased with today’s results. Super looking breakfasts and what a calm approach today by all of you, well done! Mrs Evans.


Mrs Evans was blown away by the sheer determination of our Y7’s to both set and meet such high expectations of themselves. Today, they were cooking a meal for a guest, but they also had to try to make sure the meal was suited to the individual from a ‘dietary needs’ viewpoint. They had 1 hour to complete the meal and clear away. It was exhausting for all of us, but what an achievement when the meals finally reached the table, some outstanding work- well done to all!
