Senior Management

 Deputy Head
Indra Batbayar



I completed my Master’s degree at the University of Leeds (MSc in Global Innovation Management) on the Chevening Scholarship programme and hold a Bachelor of Public Affairs and Policy Management from Carleton University, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Previously I had worked in banking until I discovered the excitement, passion and positive energy of the education sector. In 2015, I first started as the Administrative Coordinator at the British School of Ulaanbaatar and from the 2017/2018 academic year assumed the role of Deputy Head.

I truly enjoy my work environment filled with laughter and happiness and feel very privileged to be working alongside our British qualified teachers and talented Mongolian staff.

EYFS, KS1 Coordinator and EYFS Teacher

Mark Adams


Prior to teaching and after graduating from Nottingham Trent University and a 12 year career in Events Management, I completed my PGCE in 2009. Having spent last year teaching Year 2 at the British School of Ulaanbaatar, I am excited to be responsible for introducing the new EYFS Unit this year. 

I will also be teaching Reception, something I did for 6 years in the UK. Working at BSU is my first experience of an international school.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Mongolia last year and am looking forward to exploring the country a little bit more this year. I would also like to try and improve my Mongolian language a little!

 Helen Jones


I have been teaching across the English Primary curriculum for the past 13 years in both the UK and most recently in Hong Kong. I am passionate about my role as an educator and I am excited to have been given the opportunity to join the team at BSU. 

Outside of the school environment I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, yoga and travel. My husband and two young children have travelled with me to Mongolia and I hope that together we can enjoy learning more about this dynamic country, its people, culture and language.

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.

Secondary Coordinator
Head of Teaching and Learning

 Andrew Bradshaw


Maximising potential and increasing opportunities for young people are not only the reasons I entered the teaching profession, but remain my most important goals. My first year at BSU is my sixteenth year as an educator and I am very excited and proud to occupy the role of Key Stage Coordinator.

After graduating with a BSc (Hons) in Chemistry and gaining my PGCE, I worked in several schools in England occupying a number of roles including Advanced Skills Teacher, Director of Learning and Director of Science and Technology. In 2014, my wife, Katy, and I moved our three young children to the Middle East for our first international teaching posts, where I completed my MSc in Multidisciplinary Science focused on educational technologies, and it is from there that we have moved to Ulaanbaatar, eager to continue our experience.

My teaching practice relies on working with the individual in order to help them to make most progress and, as a chemist, experiential learning occupies a large part of my lessons. There is still no greater thrill in a classroom than the moment a student links their practical experience to a theoretical concept and can articulate their understanding.
The students at BSU are the most enjoyable aspect of my role, getting to know them whilst helping them to achieve their goals provides my daily motivation and I look forward to celebrating their successes with them.
