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.



Mr D Ayling, Miss N Chantrell, Mr L Mitchem, Mrs A Forsey  and Mrs S Taylor. 


The staff will meet the children at Puddletown First School early on Monday morning.  Please arrive and park in the First School car park for 5am.  The coach will be departing as close to 5.30am as possible so please give yourselves plenty of time to get there!! 


Please make sure you remember all medication that your child may need during the week.


Make sure the coloured luggage label has also been attached to your child's suitcase.


We will send a text message when we arrive at the centre and add details onto this website under News Events/Trips for each day of the trip with photos where possible!!
