Harry Potter House Quiz

Have you been sorted into a Hogwarts house already? Or are you among the ones lost by the Ministry’s registry? Don’t worry. If you know that you are magical in your heart, there’s another way to be sorted outside of Hogwarts. And this Harry Potter House quiz will help you with this task. 

Wizarding Schools: A Mystery? 

As we all know, to enter the wizarding world, you have to attend a magic school, one of a worldwide network of wizardry and witchcraft. Which one would you like to attend as a student? Would you be satisfied with the closest one or would you prefer to choose your school? I sure would like to make the choice on my own. Moreover, I’d gladly petition for a year abroad in another school. Can you imagine how cool it’d be to see those fabled dark magic lessons in Durmstrang? Or take a look at the exotic setting of the Japanese one? I’d set up an exchange program for the 6th year students. They are old enough but can adequately prepare for N.E.W.T.S. (or their equivalents) “at home.” 

Also, have you noticed the highest secrecy of the wizarding schools, even among mages? There are eleven big prestigious long-standing institutions, yet we know only 8 of them by name and approximate location. Where lie the mysterious 4? That’s an interesting question I hope J.K.Rowling will reveal in the future. And then, we’ll be able to take a Harry Potter sorting quiz to those schools as well.

The Greatest of Them All

I genuinely believe that every wizarding school is great, but let’s face a harsh truth - Hogwarts will always be the first in our hearts. No matter how good Ilvermorny, or Durmstrang, or any other school is, we’ve all grown up watching “Hogwarts Adventures” and wishing to be a part of them. Thus, to quiz which Harry Potter House you are is the primary goal of all Wizarding fans. 

If you are in your 20s, you definitely need an introduction to Hogwarts houses. However, if you are a new fan and are a bit confused with the distinction, the following summary should be useful for you.


This is the House of the bravest of them all! And Harry Potter, of course. Gryffindor is represented the best in the series. We see its numerous students, locations, and lessons all the time. From these experiences, we’ve learned that Gryffindors are brave in heart, sometimes reckless, often funny, and very tight-knit.

This is the main rival House of Gryffindor. Slytherin is the home for cunning and ambitious. And Draco Malfoy! Though somewhat cast in a bad light in the series, Slytherin is more than blood purity and snarky comments. You’ll also find some of the bravest people here. And being resourceful is a really beneficial quality. 


This is the House of hardworking and kind people. And Newt Scamander! Others often disregard Hufflepuff, but it has given the world many influential and successful wizards and witches. Hufflepuff friendliness and loyalty are the pride of the House!

Ravenclaw is the House of intelligent and creative. And Luna Lovegood! We don’t see much of this House, but the few people that we encounter all play an essential role in some period of Harry’s life. This House favors people who value knowledge but also want to express themselves in creative ways. 

And now, let’s get sorted into your right Hogwarts House!
