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.
We are delighted that you are considering sending your child to St. Mary's C.E. Middle School. At the current time, we are unable to show you the school in person. To help you get a feel for the school, we have created a virtual tour. Click on the link below to explore our facilities and grounds. Throughout the tour, we have included hot spots where you can get further information about St. Mary's and see examples of the work that pupils have produced.

We use all of the photos taken during each term and put them together in a special celebration video. We watch these videos as part of the special rewards assembly at the end of each term. These videos showcase the diverse range of activities that take place at St. Mary's C.E. Middle School and we would recommend watching a sample of these to find out about life at St. Mary's (please note that there are no videos for the Spring and Summer Terms of 2020 as the school was closed due to the national lockdown). Please click on the link below to access the videos.
We are proud of the qulaity of education on offer at St. Mary's C.E. Middle School. Pupils access a wide range of curriculum subjects and are able to take advantage of specialist traching resources. Our house captains and subject leaders would like to tell you a little more about the different subjects on our curriculum and have created some videos to tell you a little more.
