It is the finest school of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the world and is run by the finest Headmaster Hogwarts has ever had, [[Albus Dumbledore]]. Logically it had to be set in a secluded place, and pretty soon I settled on Scotland in my mind."'' Fraser, L., ''An interview with J.K.Rowling'', Mammoth, London, 2000.

Established in c. 9th/10th century, Hogwarts is considered to be one of the finest magical institutions in the Wizarding world, though other notable schools include [[Beauxbatons Academy of Magic]] and the [[Durmstrang Institute]]. Children with magical abilities may be enrolled at birth and acceptance is confirmed by [[Owl post]] at age eleven.

There seemed to be other ways of entering the school, such as via [[broomstick|brooms]] or [[Floo powder]], or simply [[Apparition|Apparating]] to a nearby location such as [[Hogsmeade]]. Missing the Hogwarts Express for any reason is a very serious problem but will not cost the student [[House points|points]] as long as they get there before the term has officially started. However this rule was broken in Harrys second year when he came to Hogwarts in a flying car.

The [[Hogwarts Express]] brings the students to [[Hogsmeade]] Station, where the first years traditionally cross the [[Black Lake]] in boats with the [[Keeper of Keys and Grounds|gamekeeper]], and go under an opening in the rocks upon which Hogwarts is built, through a curtain of ivy, and finally into an underground harbour.
