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.
Darrell Wakelam , a brilliant 2D sculptural artist, worked with a selection of pupils from KS2 and KS3 to create sculptures based on popular children's fiction on Monday and Tuesday of this week. The children spent all day creating some fantastic pieces of Art. The pieces will go on permanent display in the School Library. The project was made possible through generous funding from 'The Arts Society Dorset County'.
