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.
Year 5 celebrated Science Week with Mr Houldey last week with fun packed learning activities. They measured the speed of the wind by blowing bubbles; investigated camouflaged creatures; and got to watch Steve Shapland's rocket show, followed by a rocket building workshop, where they got to fire their own rockets! Many thanks to Steve, and the PE Department who let us use the Sports Hall for building, and the field for firing. Look out Miss Osborne; incoming missiles! All the feedback I have received from pupils, teachers and from Steve Shapland has been hugely positive, well done all!
