Senior Management



Melanie Hitchcocks - Academic Director

I am a qualified History teacher with a BA honours degree in History from Newcastle University and a Postgraduate Certificate of Education from Durham University. In January 2018 I will graduate from Lincoln University with an MA in Medieval History.

Over the past ten years I have taught History, Geography and English in both the special needs and mainstream education sectors in the UK. I feel passionately that learning is a lifelong undertaking and I am looking forward to inspiring the next generation of lifelong learners here in Mongolia.

In 2009 I graduated with a drama degree from St Mary's University College, Twickenham. My degree was focused on creating theatre for children and the local community in London.

Joe Hatton - KS1 Coordinator
After graduating for York University, I taught in London and aided a partnership of schools to improve their science teaching by writing them a new curriculum and leading training sessions.

As Key Stage 1 coordinator, I am excited to continue the good practice which has been in place, as well as aiding the school to continue to improve and develop to raise standards.

I will be teaching Meerkat class (Y1) this year and am excited to aid the children to develop a passion for learning.

Ciaran Gallagher - KS2 Coordinator

My name is Ciaran Gallagher and I am incredibly excited to be teaching the Year 5 Yak Class this year. I am looking forward to helping everyone in Yak Class grow as individuals and develop a passion for learning.

After finishing my Bachelors of Education at the University of Chester in 2014, I proceeded to teach a Year 5 class for two years in the United Kingdom. 
Following that experience, I decided to teach Kindergarten in China, which was an experience that has helped me grow professionally.

Outside of school, I love to travel and experience new cultures and activities. I am very much looking forward to what Mongolia has to offer. In addition to travelling, I enjoy reading and hiking so I cannot wait to venture outside of Ulaanbaatar.

Michael Delaney - Secondary Coordinator / Mathematics Teacher

Hello Mike Delaney here. I graduated from Aberystwyth University in Wales with a Mathematics degree, then gained my PGCE qualification in Bath, England.

I have previously taught in Reading, which is about 20 miles outside of London and in Krakow, Poland. This is my second year at BSU and I'm really looking forward to welcoming returning and new students back to school.
As you can imagine, just like any other Maths teacher, most of my time is spent revelling in the glory of Maths and all it entails. 
On those rare moments I manage to tear myself away from numbers I enjoy watching and playing sport of pretty much any type, reading books, travelling and trying to find something that'll finally make me laugh.

Sarnai G, - Mongolian staff coordinator

I graduated from Mongolian National University of Education in 2003 with a bachelor degree in English Translation.

My passion is to work with children, therefore I’ve been working at BSU for 6 years since its establishment and it  has been a great time. Worked four years in year 1 and one year in year 3 as Teaching Assistant.

This year I’m excited to be returning to BSU as a Primary EAL Teacher. I’m very happy to use my experience gathered from previous teaching years to contribute to primary students’ education in BSU.

I believe that when students gain proper knowledge in early years, in further learning they will achieve success and become lifelong learners.
