Hogwarts School Of Witchcraft And Wizardry

The Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is a wizarding school located in the Scottish Highlands.

Overview

Located inside of Hogwarts Castle by the loch, the precise location of the school can never be uncovered because it has been rendered Unplottable. Similarly, most wizarding schools locations are protected in order to prevent their ways of teaching being revealed, as well as protect the students and schools themselves from any harm.

The school's motto is Draco Dormiens Nunquam Titillandus and is in Latin, which translates to "Never tickle a sleeping dragon".

Hogwarts has a reputation as one of the most prestigious wizarding schools in the world and the only wizarding school available in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. It is an old establishment - stricken sometime in the mid-Viking Age - and an intense competitor to its European counterparts.

The school term begins on September 1st with an opening ceremony in which each student is sorted into their houses. Classes begin the next day on September 2nd. Hogwarts has two holidays in which classes are in recess and students may return home: Christmas and Easter. Classes end in time for a long recess during the summer months.

Great meat shields. Ask Archie.

Offensively inoffensive.

Better than you.
