On October 17, the Board of Governors announced the search process to select the 8th Principal of Branksome Hall. Branksome’s bold mission to challenge and inspire girls to love learning and to shape a better world 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. The search should be completed by June 2023. The new Principal will take up the role 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 to date has included 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.

This is a chance to lead an innovative, values-driven school dedicated to educating today’s students to meet the opportunities of tomorrow. Reporting to an engaged Board of Governors and working collaboratively with outstanding learners and leaders, Branksome’s next Principal will establish and achieve ambitious goals for the school, building Branksome’s global brand through the highest-quality education and student experience.
As the search to find our next Principal progresses, we will keep our community informed of important milestones and developments.
We wish to acknowledge this land on which Branksome operates. For thousands of years, it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work and go to school on this land.
