Majella O Doherty

Admissions and Marketing Manager

Majella joined The British School of Beijing, Sanlitun in January 2017. Her two boys have attended the school in August 2016. Majella has a Masters in Journalism from Dublin City University, Ireland.

I have lived and worked in Dublin, Brussels and Zagreb before moving to Beijing in 2016. While my entire professional career has been in communications and marketing, I began my working life in the education sector: first as Press & Information Officer for the Union of Students in Ireland (USI) before moving on to the National College of Ireland (NCI) where I was Marketing & Communications Officer.

I worked for RTÉ, Ireland’s Public Service Media organization, for over five years as Group Press Officer. More recently I was European Communications Manager for Goodman Group, a global property group.

As a parent, I have been part of three school communities in three years. I know that the decision parents make when it comes to educating our children is not one that is taken lightly. We are choosing not just a school, but an education system and a community. I’m delighted that we found a perfect match for our boys at BSB Sanlitun.
