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.
St. Mary's has gone book mad today to celebrate the 20th anniversary of World Book Day. Many of the staff and pupils have dressed up as famous book characters, whilst the rest of the school has been in non-uniform. The money raised will be used to purchase a year long subscription to get a selection of magazines delivered to the library each month for the pupils to read during their break and lunch hours. We hope that you enjoy the photos!
