Welcome to Invercargill Middle School. 

Our School vision is 'E Tu Atu Nei' - Stand up, stand strong, and be proud! We nurture and encourage all of our tamariki to do just that!

Our school values to be an IMS Learner

I am an IMS Learner

I am Inquisitive

I do great Mahi

I Support others

By doing all of these things I show Integrity


We want our students to fulfil their potential, to feel part of and contribute to our school, community, and wider society. We achieve this through our high quality teachers who use "teaching as an inquiry” to continue to improve their practice and who provide the best possible educational opportunities for your children within a culturally responsive, safe, stimulating environment which motivates our students to achieve.

We encourage our parents to have ongoing communication with the school and teachers and to support this we have a range of established electronic systems. Through Seesaw, you, as parents or caregivers, are able to link into your child’s class and teacher and see particular moments of interest during the day, or have your child share their work in real-time with you.  You are also able to use this function to message the teacher directly. 

We like to have an open door policy and encourage you to come in and meet with one of our friendly staff.
