The school library was decorated with locations from the Harry Potter series including Platform 9 and 3/4, The Dursley’s fireplace, The great hall and four house areas.

Pupils played tabletop Quidditch, made wands and completed a treasure hunt, looking for the seven horcruxes to defeat the Dark Lord.
