Neil Smith


I studied Marine Biology at Newcastle University and gained my PGCE in Biology and Science at Reading University. After working with VSO in Papua New Guinea and Nepal I gained an MA in Development, with a focus on Gender and Education. Over the past 23 years I have worked in the UK and overseas, including the Middle East, Africa and Europe. 

My roles have been in teaching and in managerial and teacher training positions. 
I am excited to take on the position of Head of Secondary at BSU and look forward to working with the staff, students and parents to ensure that each individual can achieve their full potential.

Peter Norton


My name is Peter Norton and I am delighted to be teaching at BSU this year and very much looking forward to spending time in this wonderful country. It will be my pleasure to help support the children with their learning and at the same time have the opportunity to explore and learn about Mongolia and its people. 
I am originally from London (England) and now live in a small town called Deal which is by the sea in the south east of England.

I have been a teacher for over 15 years teaching both primary and secondary children. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and pupils have always responded well to my style of teaching.
As well as teaching primary I am also a primary PE and Sport specialist. Family, travel and sport are my passions.

KS1 Coordinator
Mary Norton


My name is Mary Norton.  I have been teaching for over 15 years and have always enjoyed seeing children make progress and enjoy themselves.  
I am passionate about providing top quality education for the children of our future.  This is the first time I have travelled to Mongolia and I am really looking forward to exploring this amazing country with my husband and 3 children.  

In England I live in a small town right by the sea so it will be interesting living in a country with no coast.
In my spare time I enjoy baking and creating interesting cakes, travelling and trying to keep fit.
