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.
Event: Year 8 Leavers’ Church Service
Date: Friday 10th July
We would like to invite you to the Big Leavers Service on Friday 10th July at 1pm.
This service will be live-streamed from Salisbury Cathedral on their youtube page (and takes the place of the service we would have held at St Mary’s church in Puddletown). The service can be watched from anywhere, and will be available for the rest of the summer term. It is a virtual service so pupils and adults will watch and participate from home - no-one will physically attend.
It is a wonderful way for us all to gather together as a community to reflect upon and celebrate the experience Year 8 pupils have had at St Mary’s.
