Once the application is submitted and all required documents are uploaded, including the submission of the mandatory video, selected applicants will be contacted by the Admissions Team to schedule an interview. As spaces are limited, not every applicant will be interviewed.
The brief two-minute video is an opportunity for the applicant to introduce themselves to the Admissions Team. We want to hear from the applicants themselves about their family, interests, and why they've chosen Branksome Hall.
All report cards/transcripts must be submitted before the Admissions Office will schedule the interview.
Students applying for Grade 7 and Grade 8 are asked to prepare a portfolio
of graded school work and personal accomplishments to present during the interview. Students can use any medium they wish to prepare their portfolio which should be an “All About Me” sharing of information that allows the interviewer to learn more about each student. Students will be interviewed first, as they share their portfolio, followed by time with the parents/guardians.
Grades 9–11 Boarding applicants to either write our Branksome Hall Math and English Entrance Tests or submit their results of the SSAT (Secondary School Admission Test). For more information on writing the SSAT, please visit the SSAT website
. Students interested in the Branksome Hall Entrance Tests will complete the English portion during their interview and a separate date will be shared for the Math Test.
