JAPANESE pupils have been learning all about Harry Potter at The King’s School and Gloucester Cathedral.

A group of 52 pupils from Showa High School in Japan have been at King’s this week on an exchange programme.

In addition to tours of the school, they have been taking part in classes and learning all about the film connections and history.

Gloucester Cathedral has been used in a number of the Harry Potter films providing the backdrop for some of the most memorable scenes.

The students also played a game of Quidditch – a high flying endeavour involving Hogwarts students flying around on super-powered broomsticks as they chase a flying ball called a snitch.

David Griffiths, Head of Sixth Form said: “The girls just loved the whole Harry Potter experience and to actually meet someone who was an extra in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, Jason Phelps, Upper Sixth, was definitely a highlight, along with joining in the Quidditch game.”
