Bramalea Secondary School (nicknamed BSS) is a high school located in Brampton, Ontario, operating under the Peel District School Board established in 1963. The school starts at 8:30 am and ends at 3:02 pm.
On December 10, 2004, a gunman shot 47-year-old grade 10 teacher Aysegul Candir in the head multiple times in a Bramalea Secondary School parking lot. Mrs. Candir was pronounced dead in hospital later in the day. Peel Regional Police would later apprehend Candir's 62-year-old husband, Erhun, and charged him with murder. The incident was considered as a domestic dispute.
- The 2008-09 school year marked a significant change for Bramalea's yearbook program.
