Founded in 1903, we have 110 years of experience educating young women to become the learners of today and leaders of tomorrow. At Branksome Hall, students become remarkable.

Features you will find at Branksome Hall:
Founded in 1903, Branksome Hall is an independent school for girls. Today, the school rests on a 13-acre campus in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The school was founded by Miss Margaret Scott as the first non-denominational all-girls school in Toronto.
Over the years, both the campus and student enrolment have expanded. Branksome’s campus now includes more than sixteen buildings, ranging from heritage homes to modern structures, all linked by state-of-the-art technology.
While today’s IB World School is globally minded and has a diverse student body, Branksome Hall has retained many of its early Scottish traditions.
Dorm facilities: The communal living experience in residence provides a home away from home for our 62 residence students, who live in one of three beautiful heritage homes on campus.
