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.
The Year 8 boys flew the Berlin, Germany on Friday to take part in a competition with the Dorchester Town Youth Football team to compete at an international tournament.
It was a very successful journey for the boys in more ways than one and a great experience, with both Dorchester Teams finishing 1st and 2nd against some very competitive teams from around Europe, with some tense moments and a mix of emotions, over the last four days.
