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.
We held an informal Music Festival on Monday 10th June. Music ensembles such as choir, orchestra, Ukulele group, Brass Ensemble and rock club to name but a few performed. In addition, all pupils were welcome to perform at this event either as a soloist or as part of their own group.
Parents and carers were invited to attend this event and were able to move between the school hall, dining room and music room to sit and listen to the various musical acts on offer.
Thank you very much for the donations made on the night, in aid of the Music Department.
