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.

Pupils also enjoyed Harry Potter related snacks including Butter Beer, Golden Snitch cupcakes and Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans.

Meanwhile, the school also held a week-long campaign to promote safe internet and social media use.
