Dear Parents and Students,
It is my privilege to welcome you to our school and the 2018 - 2019 academic year. As school opens this year we celebrate an increase in student numbers, improved levels of attendance and an increase in the number of British Qualified Teachers in our school.
I am delighted to be able to celebrate the outcome of the Council of British International Schools (COBIS) Accreditation visit in March 2018. The British School of Ulaanbaatar (BSU) was visited by a team of four accreditation inspectors from the UK, Bruni, Lithuania and Russia who looked at every aspect of the schools operations and most importantly standards of teaching and learning.
The BSU was awarded two COBIS certificates, one for 'Compliance', meaning that it meets all the standards for a British International School, and a second for ‘Patron's Accreditation Member Status', meaning that it experienced rigorous scrutiny and was shown to meet high standards delivering the best British and International practice possible. The school was judged to have many strengths, and the team described the quality of relationships between teachers and students as exceptional.
At the time of the accreditation visit only 6 schools had been awarded Patron's Accreditation in the world. Only 30 schools had visits booked and only 25 Accreditation Leaders were qualified to lead a team of inspectors to perform this type of inspection.
The BSU is also proud to announce that it’s examination results for this academic were the best in the history of the school. The iGCSE Results were 10% higher than in the previous year with 22% of our 16 year old students achieving the highest grades awarded by the examinations board, A* and A Grades.
At ‘A’ Level all our students passed, a 100% pass rate therefore, with them going on to Higher Education here in Mongolia and also in Australia, Hungary, the UK, and New York (USA). We wish them well for the future.
These excellent examination results and the COBIS Patron’s Accreditation both provide external validation of the standards attained throughout the school at every level. They quality assure what we achieve so that our parents and students can have full confidence in the extent to which BSU stretches all children to achieve beyond their potential.
Head of School
