Who's Who

Paul Monaghan

I have been involved with Langley Park School for Boys since September 2013 and was elected as a parent governor in April 2015.

I am always impressed with the high standards at the school and will ensure that I play my part in helping the school to continue this success.

Away from the school, I have worked in banking and corporate finance for over 27 years and am also a Foundation Governor at a successful primary school in the neighbouring borough of Lewisham.


Steve Parsons

I have been teaching for 17 years now, having done a PGCE at the Institute of Education following the completion of a History Degree at Kings College, London in 1996. During that time I have worked at schools in Hammersmith and Fulham where I was both a Head of Year, and a Head of Department, before moving to Greenwich to take up my first senior role as an Assistant Headteacher.

Prior to moving to Langley Boys I worked for seven years as a Deputy Headteacher at a large comprehensive school in Lambeth. Having lived in Beckenham for the last 14 years I was extremely excited about the opportunity to become Headteacher at Langley Park School for Boys in September 2013, and I look forward to guiding the school through the next phase of its journey.

I've worked in and around education publishing for most of my career, starting out selling science schemes to primary schools following the introduction of the national curriculum. I have been self-employed as a marketing consultant for nearly 20 years offering advice to publishers and EdTech companies including assessment providers and a revision app. I'm looking forward to being part of the team and using my marketing experience to help engage with pupils, parents and the wider community.


Daniel Malynn

I attended LPSB between 2000 -2007, and became a governor in 2018. I am keen to help the school progress within the new academy trust and support the school’s leadership. I sit on the Governing Body’s People & Community Committee, I am keen to better connect other LPSB alumni with the school to benefit pupils' development.

Since leaving LPSB, I worked for 5 years doing Court advocacy in a range of Civil Litigation for various firms. In 2016 I changed careers and joined the Civil Service. I have worked at Home Office, MOD and Department of Health as well as a secondment with King’s Health Partners Cardiovascular Networks Team. I have volunteered for Progress Educational Trust a small independent charity since 2010. I previously vice chaired the alumni Kent Law Campaign to build a new Law Clinic at University of Kent. I have a keen interest in Health, Education and Social policy. I am keen to bring my knowledge from across sectors

Outside of work and LPSB, I enjoy going to the British Museum and theatre & comedy performances.


Jane Black

I currently work in the Learning Support Department at Langley Park School for Boys, I have been working in education for eight years and have experience in both Primary and Secondary settings.  As well as being a member of staff I am also mum to two children who attend the Langley Secondary Schools.  Prior to this, I worked for a large financial institution where I gained valuable skills that I have been able to transfer into my current role.

I am very proud of LPSB and all that it achieves academically and in extra-curricular activities, being a member of staff is both challenging and rewarding.

In my spare time I like to spend time with my family and meet up with friends!  Or, I can usually be found at the side of the cricket pitch or in the spectators gallery at the swimming pool!

I have taught Spanish, Italian, French and English and have been Head of two international colleges in London. I have also worked as Chief Operations Officer of a Multi-Academy Trust and currently offer an educational consultancy service. I have two sons at Langley Park and I feel privileged to be involved in the work and development of such an excellent school. I have served on a number of school and charity governing boards and have always been committed to the notion of strong, collaborative and supportive governance.

I have two sons at the school, who are both benefitting from the educational and extra-curricular opportunities LPSB offers its students.

I have circa twenty years experience in senior roles in multi-national businesses, with particular expertise in procurement and supply chain to add to my early career in semi-conductor and telecoms engineering. Throughout my career I have enjoyed building and motivating successful international teams and developing their skills.

I feel privileged to join as a Governor and as a member of the Resources Committee, and I look forward to playing my part in the continued development of the school.

Thomas Moore

My son started at Langley Park School for Boys in 2018 and I was elected as a parent governor in February 2020.

Professionally, I have over 20 years’ experience in senior technology roles across multiple industries, including healthcare, consumer goods, retail, and technology, and I currently work in commercial property.

Personally, I am driven by ensuring that all children regardless of background have access to an outstanding education. To that end, I was a Trustee previously at a charity that focused on supporting vulnerable, disadvantaged, and excluded children.

I am impressed with the staff and team at LPSB and feel privileged to have a role where I can support the continued development of the school and help to ensure outstanding outcomes for the pupils.

Jayne Mitchell

I was elected as a Parent Governor in 2020 and have two sons who attend the school.

I qualified as a teacher in 1991 and worked in Islington for many years before moving to Lambeth as a Headteacher in 2002. I am currently the Executive Headteacher of a small federation of schools in Brixton and Stockwell and a member of the Lambeth Schools Partnership Board.  I have also been a serving Ofsted inspector and chair several committees and working groups within the Borough.

I am privileged to be a Governor at Langley and I am looking forward to being part of the developmental journey of the school. 

I am passionate about education and the development of our young people as individuals. I believe strongly in growing academic skills and knowledge, but also believe in physical, personal and creative development. School is not just about the academics, but also about developing friendships, learning how to be good citizens, having fun, learning how to make informed choices and learning how to be independent.  I think the curriculum and pastoral support on offer at Langley creates many opportunities that enable our pupils to develop these skills.  I am, therefore, looking forward to supporting the leadership team to continue their excellent work as much as I can.
