A '''Headmaster''' or '''Headmistress''' (or '''Highmaster''', in [[Durmstrang Institute]]) is the chief administrator of a School of [[Magic]] . They make all major decisions regarding the safety and the day-to-day functioning of the school, and have the power to override any decision made by any other authoritative facilitator at the school, with the possible exception of the [[Hogwarts Board of Governors|Board of Governors]] (and during a brief period in 1996, the "[[High Inquisitor]]"), in [[Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry|Hogwarts]]. A Headmaster also controls the protective spells surrounding the school and the ability for certain individuals to enter or exit the grounds at will. The [[Hogwarts founders|four founders of Hogwarts]] ([[Helga Hufflepuff]] , [[Godric Gryffindor]] , [[Salazar Slytherin]] , and [[Rowena Ravenclaw]] ) are not considered heads, despite leading the school during their time.

Dumbledore&#039;s speech at the Great Hall in 1996

Hogwarts' Headmaster Albus Dumbledore stands in front of the students at the Great Hall during the Welcoming Feast in 1996.

A Headmaster or Headmistress is the chief administrator of a School of Magic. They make all major decisions regarding the safety and the day-to-day functioning of the school, and have the power to override any decision made by any other authoritative facilitator at the school, with the possible exception of the Board of Governors (and during a brief period in 1996, the "High Inquisitor"), in Hogwarts. A Headmaster also controls the protective spells surrounding the school and the ability for certain individuals to enter or exit the grounds at will. The four founders of Hogwarts (Helga Hufflepuff, Godric Gryffindor, Salazar Slytherin, and Rowena Ravenclaw ) are not considered heads, despite leading the school during their time.

Hogwarts also has a Deputy Headmaster or Deputy Headmistress (depending on gender) that assists the headmaster in his duties. In the event of a headmaster's incapacitation, the deputy headmaster serves as temporary headmaster until the Board of Governors can elect a new, permanent one. There can also be more than one deputy headmaster, as the Carrow siblings served under Severus Snape when Voldemort took over Hogwarts.

  • Dolores Umbridge was not considered an official Hogarts Headmistress by most. The headmaster's office did not open to her. Also, Phineas Nigellus Black told Severus Snape that he was the first Headmaster from Slytherin since himself, although Professor Umbridge was also a Slytherin.
  • It's unknown if there can be more than one headmaster at a time. There was a Porttrit in the headmaster's office depicting several wizards playing wizard's Chess together, suggesting that it is possible. The Carrow sibbling were also both Deputy Headmaster and Headmistress.
