The Selection Committee is a panel of Prefects and possibly Heads of House that is in charge of Sorting the first-year students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry into one of the four Houses.
Behind the scenes
- This board of Sorters was one of the first ways of Sorting students J. K. Rowling considered. This idea did not, however, make its way into canon, as she didn't find it "magical enough"; the Sorting Hat was subsequently chosen in its place.
