Fairfield High School students enjoy school’s first Harry Potter Sleepover

Last week Year 7 Fairfield High School students took part in the school’s first sleepover, and all in aid of a wizardry character named Harry Potter!

Harry Potter Book Night is an international event organised by Bloomsbury, an opportunity to celebrate Rowling’s Wizarding World.

Year 7 students at Fairfield High School (and some of its student librarians) dressed staff in robes and wrote about what subjects they would teach at Hogwarts.


They hunted for pixies, made potions while they ate pizza, discussed their favourite passages of the books and chose their favourite story to watch.

The school also cleverly transformed its Textiles Room into the Defence Against the Darks Arts classroom, the Food Tech Room into the Potions classroom, and the school Library into the Divination Classroom!



Angelica Ramos-Gamazo, Senior Librarian comments:

“We were really excited about entering in the spirit of the Harry Potter Book Night by hosting our first ever themed sleepover!

“We pulled out all the stops to make this experience as fun and memorable as it could possibly be, with each room decorated from top to bottom with its chosen theme. Voodoo dolls, tarot cards, skeletons, potions and cauldrons… nothing was too much for Team Fairfield!”
