As summer winds down, students across the globe face that dreaded first day back at school but it's not so bad when that first day is at Hogwarts — well, sort of.
The 11-and 12-year-old students of Queens' School in Bushey, England were summoned to hold their school assembly on the Harry Potter set at Warner Bros Studio Tour in London. The students gathered in the set's Great Hall, where class hasn't been "in session" since the series' filming.
The Great Hall played host to some of the series' most iconic scenes through its 8-film run, from the Sorting Hat assigning the students of Hogwarts to their houses, to the Yule Ball preceding the Tri-Wizard Tournament.
"I can't believe we were actually there," one student said of the special day. "It's like we were a part of Hogwarts School. It was brilliant."
