Year 11 visit to Warner Brother’s Studio Tour: The Making of Harry Potter

Posted: 31st January 2022

On Thursday 27 January, pupils from Year 11 were fortunate enough to visit the Warner Brother’s Studio tour in northwest London to see the making of Harry Potter. It was a fantastic opportunity for those die-hard fans of the Harry Potter film series to see behind the scenes and get a glimpse of how all of the magic takes place on screen, from iconic set pieces, props and costumes to animatronics and post-production techniques.

Some highlights were the great hall, Gringotts Wizarding Bank and the large-scale model of Hogwarts school, which was described as the jewel in the crown of the design team.

Pupils (and staff) got to pose on broomsticks to appear in a Quidditch match and add themselves to a wanted poster as dangerous outlaw wizards pursued by the Ministry of Magic.

It was also an incredible opportunity to see how many people it takes to put a feature film together and the story of the actors growing up on set whilst still undertaking their studies.
