First Years
A first year is a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry who is new to Hogwarts and in their first year of magical education.

Beginning the magical career

Travelling to Hogwarts
First years travelling across the Black Lake on boats, to reach Hogwarts.

First years are typically eleven to twelve years of age, and begin the year by boarding the Hogwarts Express at exactly 11 a.m. from King's Cross Station on which they travel to Hogwarts. If they are a wizarding family and live in Hogsmeade, they do not need to catch the train. From there, first year students are accompanied by the Keeper of Keys and Grounds, or another suitable teacher if they are absent, to a shady path that leads to a fleet of small boats, which magically sail themselves across the Black Lake to arrive at a small landing stage near the castle of Hogwarts; next, they await their turn to get Sorted into their houses. A teacher takes them to a small room where they await the Sorting ceremony.

The Welcoming Feast

Just before the Welcoming Feast begins, there is a Sorting ceremony, where the students are Sorted into the four houses (Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin) by the Sorting Hat. After the sorting, the Headmaster says a few words and the Welcoming Feast begins. After the meals have been eaten, the headmaster says a few more words; then the headmaster directs the school song at the end of the start-of-term feast if he feels in a particularly festive mood. The headmaster directs the song with his wand. He flicks out a ribbon that floats in the air, creating the words for the students to sing along with, each singing to the tune of their choice. The rest of the staff does not appear to have any delight in this little ritual, but for example, Albus Dumbledore conducts the singing with gusto and even gets a bit misty at the end of:


Hogwarts, Hogwarts,
Hoggy Warty Hogwarts
'Teach us something, please,
'Whether we be old and bald
'Or young with scabby knees,
'Our heads could do with filling
With some interesting stuff,
For now they're bare and full of air,
Dead flies and bits of fluff,
'So teach us things worth knowing,
'Bring back what we've forgot,
'Just do your best, we'll do the rest,
'And learn until our brains all rot.


During the first year

First year classes

include Flying, Potions, Herbology, Defence Against the Dark Arts, Transfiguration, History of Magic, Astronomy, and Charms.

Herbology: Students only work in Greenhouse one. They are lectured about such dangerous plants as Devil's Snare, but do not actually work with these types of plants. Herbology is taught three times a week.

Charms: On Halloween, first-years started learning the Hover Charm. Part of their end of year Charms exam was to make a pineapple dance across the desk.

Defence Against the Dark Arts: They were taught the Bat-Bogey Hex, the Knockback Jinx and the Wand-Lighting Charm.

Flying: The class was meant to teach students how to fly on broomsticks.

History of Magic: Lectures on various aspects of magical history. The only Hogwarts subject ever taught by a ghost. The end-of-term exam required the student to answer a number of questions.

Potions: Students make simple potions such as the Boil-Cure Potion. The final exam included a practical portion requiring the students to make a Forgetfulness Potion.

Transfiguration: Students learn how to change a match into a needle. For the end of term practical exam, students are needed to turn a mouse into a snuffbox (extra points for how pretty the snuffbox was, points off if it still has whiskers).

Astronomy: They had to study the night skies through their telescopes every Wednesday at midnight and learn the different names of the stars and the movements of the planets.

Second Years

A second year is a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry who is in their second year of magical education. Second Years are typically 12 to 13 years of age unless a student had to repeat the second year. The Second Year is the first year in which students are allowed to go with the rest of the school in the school carriages pulled by Thestrals up to the castle.

During the Second Year

Classes

Students in the second year are generally taken to the more dangerous greenhouses in Herbology, and are allowed to try out for their house Quidditch team. Second year classes include Potions, Herbology, Defence Against the Dark Arts, Transfiguration, History of Magic, Astronomy, and Charms.

Like first years, second years aren't allowed to accompany those in the third year or above to Hogsmeade village for the weekend trips, however, they are allowed to have their own broom inside the school grounds.

Timetable

Monday
*Potions (first period)
*Herbology (second period)
*Charms (third period)
*Defence Against the Dark Arts (fourth period)

Tuesday
*Transfiguration (first period)

Wednesday
*Double Herbology (first period)
*Transfiguration (second period)
*Double Potions (third period)
*Defence Against the Dark Arts (fourth period)

Thursday
*Defence Against the Dark Arts (first period)
*Charms (second or third period)
*Herbology (third or fourth period)
*Transfiguration (fourth period)

Course Choices

Near the end of their second year, students choose new courses required for after-school work. Students from wizard families usually ask their families what class they should take. Usually only two of these are needed.

The List of Extra classes is so:

*Divination
It teaches methods of divining the future, or gathering insights into future events, through various rituals and tools. The magic taught in this class, as well as the ability to say prophetic things is a branch of magic referred to as "divination."

*Arithmancy
It is apparently a more accurate (or at least more accepted) way of predicting the future, similar to an obscure but existing hobby of numerology - the belief that number patterns existing in real life can be calculated to give information regarding the future.

*Study of Ancient Runes
Ancient Runes is a mostly theoretical subject that studies the ancient runic scripts of magic.

*Care of Magical Creatures
In the class, students learn about a wide range of magical creatures, from flobberworms to Fire crabs, and even unicorns and thestrals. Students are taught about feeding, maintaining, breeding, and proper treatment of these various creatures.

*Muggle Studies
It is exactly what the name implies - the study of the daily lives of Muggles and how they cope with not being magical.

Each student in their third year must select at least two elective courses to pursue in addition to the core classes. Third year classes consist of Potions, Herbology, Defence Against the Dark Arts, Transfiguration, History of Magic, Astronomy, Charms, and two or more electives.

During the Third Year

Fifth Years

A Fifth Year is a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry who is in their fifth year of magical education. Fifth Years are typically fifteen to sixteen years of age. The fifth year is enormously important for students due to the fact that it is the year in which they must sit their O.W.L. exams, which will determine what N.E.W.T. courses they will be permitted to take later on in their education.

O.W.L.s determine what job opportunities they can pursue in the future. The fifth year is also the year in which students receive career counselling from their Heads of House. It is during this meeting that they will be advised as to what N.E.W.T.-level classes they should take in order to qualify for their desired career. Fifth year classes consist of Potions, Herbology, Defence Against the Dark Arts, Transfiguration, History of Magic, Astronomy, Charms, and two or more electives.

Prefects

"There's been a mistake. No one in their right mind would make Ron a prefect..."
—Fred Weasley

Every year, one male and female Fifth Year student per House is selected to become a Prefect by the professor who was appointed Head of the House in which they are.

Sixth Year

A sixth year is a student who is in his or her sixth year of magical education at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Sixth years are typically 16 to 17 years of age, although some may be older.

The sixth year is the first year in which students take N.E.W.T.-level classes. Based off of their O.W.L. scores, and depending on the minimum requirements of the Professor teaching the subject at that time, students are allowed to take any number of classes as long as they meet the requirements.

Neither the core classes nor the elective courses are available to any student who does not meet said requirements. While students do have the opportunity to choose whether they wish to continue in particular subjects, those who begin studying N.E.W.T.-level subjects in their sixth year are expected to carry on with the subject into the Seventh year, and sit the N.E.W.T. exam in that subject.

Sixth-year students are initially excited to have more free time, but this extra time is intended to help them study and do homework, as many, if not all, teachers assign more homework and give more difficult lessons in their N.E.W.T.-level classes.

Students in the sixth year may also elect to take part in Apparition lessons for a fee of twelve Galleons.

Seventh Year
A Seventh Year is a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry who is in their seventh and final year of formal magical education. Seventh Years are usually seventeen to eighteen years of age.

The Seventh Year contains the most important exams given at Hogwarts — the N.E.W.T.s. Students conclude their N.E.W.T. level studies in the seventh year, at the end of which they sit the N.E.W.T. exam pertaining to each of their subjects. A student in the Seventh Year would have the same schedule he or she had in the Sixth year, and would sit only those classes in which they received O.W.L.s meeting the minimum requirement of the professor for that subject. However, not all students take N.E.W.T.s as some occupations require only O.W.L.s.

Every year, a male and female Seventh Year Prefect are appointed Head Boy and Head Girl respectively. The Headmaster (or Headmistress) selects the Head students from among the Seventh Year prefects each year, though sometimes they may not have been Prefects.
