Year 6 Team


A Parkin

Mr A Parkin


I am Mr Parkin. I am a Year 6 class tutor and Head of Year 6. In addition, I have recently been appointed as Maths Subject Lead for Key Stage 2. I have been at Dedworth Middle School for just over 3 years, having previously trained and worked in Slough. Before becoming a teacher, I worked for many years in the field of disability within services for children and young people.

Outside of school my interests are most sports but particularly rugby which I played for too many years! I now enjoy more gentle activities like hiking and cycling. My favourite country outside of the UK is Italy where I lived and played rugby for 5 years after university.

Miss C Boere

I am a Year 6 teacher from Johannesburg, South Africa. This will be my second year at Dedworth Middle School. I had a great first year at DMS and I am looking forward to working again with the Year 6 team. I enjoy having a colourful and organised classroom, as well as creating exciting resources and lessons. 

When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, and travelling and touring in and around London!  

I look forward to meeting you all and having a happy and successful academic year!

Miss K Blakeway

I am one of the new Year 6 teachers. I am super excited to start my year with a wonderful team. I moved to the UK last year August from South Africa so have only been here a year. A lot can happen in a year. One year can bring about enough changes for a lifetime and I think we now all know that and will ensure that we make the most of this year! I can’t wait to meet you all.

Miss A Scholz

G’day! My name is Miss Scholz and I am a Year 6 teacher from sunny Brisbane, Australia. I joined the beautiful Dedworth Middle School community in January 2020. Prior to that spent 1.5 years teaching Year 2 in primary school in England, as well as teaching 2.5 years of Special Education in a high school in Australia. I am passionate about making learning fun and creating a bright, positive classroom space.

In my spare time I love to travel Europe and explore the UK! Some of my favourite destinations so far have been Edinburgh, Malta, Switzerland, and Ireland.

I am so excited to meet you all and spend another wonderful year at Dedworth Middle School!


Mrs M Nicholls

Hello, I am one of the Maths teachers at Dedworth Middle School.  I focus mainly on Key Stage 3 (Years 7 and 8) but I do sometimes teach the other years too.

I am passionate about my subject and believe that everyone can thrive and enjoy Maths just as much as I do.

I joined Dedworth Middle School in January 2020 and so it has been a strange couple of terms.  I am definitely looking forward to seeing the students back into school full time.

I live locally with my husband and daughter and I enjoy reading and getting into the great outdoors.



Miss T Andersen

I am currently a year 6 teacher and have been working at DMS since 2016. When I am not in the classroom, I very much enjoy reading, exploring different places and writing. Last summer I wrote our school Christmas play, which I very much enjoyed!  

This year, I will be running year 6 interventions for the first few weeks and then I will be off on leave to have my little girl! I will make sure I pop in with her to show her all the fantastic work you will be doing.
