Senior School Virtual Open House: Grades 9-11
Please join us for our Senior School Virtual Open House on November 10.

Virtual Conversation Corners
We invite Grade 9-11 applicants to join our Virtual Conversation Corner on November 25 to learn more about our IB Advantage for Girls and specific supports for our Senior School students.

Ask an Ambassador
Grade 9-11 applicants can join our Virtual Ask an Ambassador session on November 21 to speak to some of our current student Ambassadors to ask questions and hear about the student experience first hand

Our Admissions team looks forward to answering any questions via phone or email, or you may book a virtual chat with us over Zoom. Contact Norma at

Once your daughter’s application is submitted, you will have the opportunity to book her virtual interview and pay the application fee through our online booking system. A member of our Admissions team will first interview your daughter, then parents will be invited in for the family interview portion.

Book your SSAT test to be written by January 20, 2021.

Preparing for SSAT (Secondary School Admissions Test)
Local students applying for Grade 9 to 11 are required to write the SSAT. International students applying for Grade 7 to 11 are required to write the SSAT. If the SSAT is unavailable in your area, please contact the Admissions office or call 416-920-6265 ext. 268.

Register for SSAT
  • You will require Branksome Hall’s ID number when you register. Our ID number is 1791.
  • The school does not encourage the use of tutors for preparation — the best way to prepare is to do the practice tests supplied thought
  • Testing more than once is strongly discouraged — doing so makes no appreciable difference to results.
  • SSAT tests should be completed by mid-January in order to be considered in the first round of day admissions decisions.
  • Branksome Hall does not use the SSAT to screen applicants; therefore, interviews may be conducted before the test is taken.
  • Students whose first language is not English may be asked to do additional entrance testing to determine language proficiency.
  • If the SSAT is unavailable in your area, please visit for home testing or contact the Admissions office or call 416-920-6265 ext. 268.
