26th September – Sorting Ceremony – Come to our first and most important event, the Sorting Ceremony. This is your chance to find out whether you really are the Gryffindor you’ve always thought, or if there might be a little bit of Slytherin to you (and there’s nothing wrong with that!). With a feast to remember (free pizza), and the first chance to mingle within your houses, this is an event not to be missed!
Make sure you’ve completed our sorting quiz and paid your membership (just on the right of this page) or we won’t be able to sort you on the day. This event will take place in the Francis Bancroft Building, room 1.13, starting at 6pm. Please fill in the sorting quiz here!
