A Message from our Board Chair
Welcome to the Principal Search website, where the Search Committee will provide the Branksome Hall community with information and updates regarding the search for Branksome’s next Principal.
Branksome has a bold mission: each day, we challenge and inspire girls to love learning and to shape a better world. This mission is advanced through the strength of our leadership and partnership between the school and our community.
A Search Committee has been established and approved by the Board. The Committee is composed of Board Members, who represent parents, past parents and alum, as well as school leadership. Representative faculty and staff will serve as advisory contributors to the process. Bios of the Search Committee members can be found on this site. Our aim is to have the search completed by June 2023. The new Principal will transition to Branksome on July 1, 2024.
Toronto-based Caldwell Partners has been retained to work with the Board on the search for Branksome’s 8th Principal, which will include identifying a diverse pool of highly qualified candidates. The process will include a period of listening and comprehensive consultation with the school’s community of employees, parents, alum and students. This process will inform the development of a position profile, establishing clear criteria for our next Principal — a world-class leader who will build on our mission, vision, values and long-term aspirations.
As the search to find our next Principal is underway, we will keep our community informed of important milestones and developments. Throughout the process, we will remain committed to balancing openness and transparency with the need for confidentiality inherent in any high-level search. We very much value your input and look forward to providing you with regular updates, so please continue to visit this site to learn more.
