PTA Members


Christine Stephen - Chair

C Stephen

I have two children, my daughter is in Year 11 at LPGS and my son in in Year 9 at LPBS. I was actively involved in the PTA at their primary school and hope that some of the knowledge that I have gained over the years from running events and fundraising can be put to good use at LPGS.

I run my own business in Beckenham and this allows me to have the flexibility to dedicate the time needed to make the PTA successful. I look forward to many successful events over the next year, raising much needed funds for the school and building a strong parent community.


Lucy Gregory  – Vice Chair

L Gregory

I have two children.  My daughter is in Year 11 at LPGS and my son in Year 9 at LPBS.  I was a Governor at Highfield Junior School for several years, and now enjoy supporting the PTA with all the great initiatives we are rolling out.

My background is in Human Resources.  I am now a self-employed recruitment consultant, which allows me some flexibility and time to commit to the PTA.  I am absolutely committed to raising as much money as we can to help both the students and teachers, and to create a supportive and inclusive environment.


Inku Patel – Treasurer

PTA new member 2018

Having been a Langley girl myself, and having served as a Treasurer at junior school for over two years, I was only happy to help the hardworking PTA by giving my time and experience in finance to raise much needed funds which benefits all the girls at the school.

I have two daughters, one at LPGS and one at a junior school.  I am passionate about making sure our girls at our school have the best that we can offer, and with budget cuts, anything that PTA can raise helps enormously.  If you have always wanted to get involved and haven't had a chance, I urge you to come along to one of our meetings and see for yourself the impact our efforts are having on the school.

Lynda Smithson – Secretary

L Smithson

I have four children. The eldest is in at Surrey University studying Business and Marketing. Matthew is at LPBS and Nat and Jess are at LPGS. I spent over 30 years working for Bromley as a teacher, working with Special Needs pupils. I taught in a Special School and a Special Opportunity Unit and then worked for Bromley in the Support Services as a Specialist Maths Support Teacher. I loved the variety of the role - teaching, supporting staff in schools, training teachers and Teaching Assistants and we even wrote and trailed a successful Maths Intervention programme for Key Stage 1! At present I am continuing in my support teacher role for the Personalised Learning Team. Strangely, after all this time, I still really do like Maths!

I don’t play much sport but love to support my children when they are playing and I’m looking forward to Wimbledon tennis fortnight – fingers crossed for tickets! In my spare time I can usually be found having fun with friends and family or enjoying time outside walking the family dog!
