Senior Management


Indra Batbayar - Deputy Head

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.

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.

Andrew Bradshaw - Academic Director

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 second year here at BSU is my seventeenth year as an educator and I am very excited and proud to occupy the role of Academic Director.

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 moved to Ulaanbaatar, where we are enjoying our experience greatly.

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.
