Fifty six of the school's students, aged between 12 and 15, turned up at the school in fancy dress on Thursday evening.

The children were arranged into houses with a sorting hat and there were spells and potion making with the school's science department.

Live owls were brought into the school and there was a Harry Potter trivia quiz and readings from the famous JK Rowling stories.

School librarian Lorraine Gill said: 'This is the third time we've had this event in the school and the children and staff always really enjoy it.
