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.
All of us at the school have been blown away with the response to our 2020 Christmas 'Advert' called 'Finding Our Way'. In a little over 48 hours, we had 2,000+ views on YouTube and that number is still going up. We achieved 1,600 views last year with our 2019 advert over the whole Christmas period and so this is huge step forward. Thank you to all of those people who have shared the link and helped to spread the message.
We are delighted that it has been noticed at the Daily Echo and invite you to read the online article about the advert by clicking here.
