A magically good time!

First Year Student Session: This session is for students whose first time it is to enroll in our school. 

Advanced Student Session: This session is for students who have previously attended The Castle’s School of Magic & Wizardry. To attend the advanced session, it is not necessary for you to have attended a first year session. (Although the Headmistress would encourage having a beginner session under your belt.) The advanced session builds on knowledge taught in previous years. But if you are up to the skills of advanced wizardry, we’ll be happy to have you join us.
