Welcome to Deckleswood School - Institute of Practical Magic

Deckleswood is situated on a mountaintop, close to the town of Decklesby in Canada. Hidden from Muggle eyes by a Disillusionment charm, Deckleswood stands in a large pentagon shaped campus, protected by strong stone walls. The towers of the five common rooms stand at the corner of each wall, with an entrance gate at the front. Inside the grounds is the main area of the school. This comprises of three tall towers, the Central, East and West Towers, as well as a several smaller buildings and towers which adjoin to make the School.

Deckleswood, founded by Christopher Benjamin Tepperweed, was originally built by the power of the five pentagems. Many years later it was destroyed in a fire and then redesigned and purpose built. It remained this way for a very long time, under the leadership of Lilandra Satine Gargamath, until the school was closed. Over the 60 or so years which followed, the school fell into disrepair and was then to be demolished. Luckily that didn't happen and instead the school was bought by Lambert Henderson (the current Headmaster), returned to its former glory, refitted and refurbished. Magically enchanted, Deckleswood's interior can change at will, whenever there is a need for a new room, or area within the school. The classrooms are spacious and look out over the magnificent and well maintained grounds of the school.

Deckleswood School currently only admits ages 14 through to 18 (4th Year through to 7th Year). Our focus is now on Practical Magic, with a limited amount of subjects being taught at both O.W.L. and N.E.W.T. level. These subjects are Care of Magical Creatures, Charms, Defence, Divination, Herbology, Mental Studies (Legilimency and Occlumency), Potions and Transfiguration. Anyone choosing to attend Deckleswood should be certain their interest lies in one or more of these core subjects.
