Happy Birthday Harry Potter!

Updated Thursday 20th July 2017

July 31st is the birthday of the boy who lived (and coincidentally Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling). To celebrate, we're going potty about Potter with our academic insights into the wizarding world. Mischief managed!

July 31st is Harry Potter's birthday, and while you may not be able to give him a copy of much-coveted Twelve Fail-Safe Ways to Charm Witches, like his best pal Ron Weasley did on his 17th birthday, you can dig into our range of magical resources. We've got articles on the a range of exciting themes, spells and observances in Harry Potter, a piece on the use of magical creatures in children's novels as well as free writing courses to help you become the next J.K.Rowling - all allowing you to learn in a fun manner for free. Always.
