Welcome to St Mary's C.E. Middle School

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 and acceptance.

Our aim is to give every pupil the chance to achieve their God given potential in all areas of their life and 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.

PE Kit

The basic PE Kit needed by ALL pupils every lesson is as follows:


  • White t-shirt/polo shirt or Blue PE top (This is down to the pupil)
  • Blue sports shorts
  • Long blue sports socks
  • Trainers


Some sports/activities will require extra pieces of kit. Your child will be informed of the extra kit needed with plenty of notice. We do ask that the children are responsible for remembering to ask for the required extra kit and that they ensure they bring the correct kit into school.


If a pupil does forget their kit we will make every effort to supply them with alternative clean kit to wear.
