Bangor has the perfect school to represent Hogwarts and even our own Leaky Cauldron-esque tavern!

The Hogwarts of Bangor would clearly be John Bapst Memorial High School. With endless staircases, giant wooden doors, 'secret passageways' to the gym, and even its own Chamber of Secrets, the Purple Dragon Room!

Students and staff clearly thought of this before us as they recently did a Harry Potter themed day. This day was captured by Memorymaker Photography who snapped shots of the students as they whizzed down the hallways on broomsticks!
