A new report in the Scotsman says that Hogwarts appears on a list of the best schools in Scotland. It ranked 36th online, a place above Loretto, Edinburgh’s £23,000-per-year school. It scored more than three out of five in all categories “from atomsphere to discipline.” The managing director o fthe ranking site, the Independent Schools Network Ranking, said anyone can nominate a school and put Hogwarts on the list for fun. “We thought it was nice for the children and for the willing suspension of disbelief,” he said.

Well, if this is April’s Fool joke, the linked web-page is very well done… Unless Leaky is just reporting someone else’s April’s Fool… In any case, my comment wold be: yeah, just ask Tilda Swinton… or maybe not!

It’s not an April Fools, it was reported in the yesterday papers, when it was still the 31st of March.

This has to be an April Fools joke because of course Hogwarths should be at number 1….:)

Sillies…Hogwart’s is in Wales. They just film in Scotland to hide the real location.

Up, Hogwarts!

It would be a hell of lot easier to hide a castle in the less treaded paths of the Scottish highlands than in Wales!!

Hogwarts is in Scotland. In The Chamber of Secrets Harry and Ron fly over Dumfries in the Scottish borders to get to School in Mr Weasley’s Flying car, it tells you they are going north, it would be south from there for Wales.

Hey, Alexandra, did you see the April Fools joke on NarniaWeb, too? Haha, it was great, wasn’t it? I love the one that said Lindsay Lohan and Zac Efron have been cast in Voyage of the Dawn Treader. XD
