Supply list

Hogwarts students get a supply list each year before first term starts in September; for first years this comes along with their Hogwarts acceptance letters, Hogsmeade forms for third and for incoming sixth years, their O.W.L. results. The supply list tells them what equipment they will need for that year; it includes books, robes and other equipment. The different books and equipment are chosen by the teachers of each subject, so normally if the school has a new teacher, the books required for that subject will change as well. Not everyone in a particular year will need the same supplies, as students don't take the same subjects. This will especially differ during the sixth year, as some students will not have passed their O.W.L.s, or will be preparing to pursue a specific career. If a student doesn't have sufficient funds for some adequate reason, Hogwarts will supply a small amount to buy their supplies, although some things will have to be bought second-hand. Muggle-born wizards and witches can exchange their Muggle money for Wizarding money at Gringotts Wizarding Bank to pay for their supplies. All of the necessary Hogwarts' supplies can be bought in Diagon Alley.

Notes and references

  1. However Ginny brought Arnold her Pygmy Puff and her brother brought his rat Scabbers.
  2. Due to Harry Potter not attending Hogwarts in the 1997-1998 school year, the seventh year supplies are currently unknown. It is possible that The Standard Book of Spells (Grade 7) would be in it, although this is unconfirmed.
