Student Life



The Athletics Program seeks to provide a high-quality athletic experience by offering a range of opportunities. The goal of the program is to develop well-balanced individuals who exhibit integrity, discipline, athletic principle, teamwork, commitment and an appreciation for lifelong, active living.
At Branksome, we aim for Athletics to be an integral part of an enriching educational experience. The Athletics program supports the Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma Programs’ mandate for participation in a wide variety of interpersonal, social and physical activities. Participation contributes to overall intellectual, social and athletic development of the student while helping to achieve and maintain a healthy mind and lifestyle.

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.

Setting the new standard for girls' education everywhere takes collective action. From all of us.
