Pupils' magical evening of Harry Potter

  • Watching Harry Potter come to life through VR headsets

Pupils recently took part in their first national Harry Potter night. The English Reading Room was transformed into a Hogwarts-themed common room for a magical evening.
They were treated to the ‘Harry Potter Welcome’ as Muggles and then the sorting hat divided them into houses. Every house nominated a captain and were awarded house points in the hope of winning the prestigious Goblet of Fire. Some pupils dressed up and everyone took part in all the challenges; from singing the Hogwarts School song , to designing a personalised House Crest.

Highlights of the night were experiencing Diagon Alley, the Gryffindor Common Room and the Great Hall using the class VR headsets. The evening ended with a quick-fire quiz.
