Welcome to Deckleswood School - Institute of Practical Magic
Deckleswood's history spans over 200 years and has seen many powerful, successful and intelligent witches and wizards walk through its corridors. Not only does the school have a very unique practical syllabus, it has acquired its status as "Accredited Defence School" from the Canadian Ministry of Magic.
Deckleswood School admits all ages from 11 through to 18. For the early years our syllabus covers a fully comprehensive and wide range of subjects and learning, though focus remains on practical teaching. 4th and 5th Year study for O.W.L.s - our focus only five main subjects - Charms, Defence, Muggle Studies, Potions and Transfiguration of which students are expected to take all five. For 6th and 7th Years - our focus is N.E.W.T.s where students can choose from the same five subjects, studing as few as one and as many as five. Anyone choosing to attend Deckleswood for 4th and 5th Year, or even 6th and 7th Year, should be certain their interest lies in one or more of these core subjects.
Please continue to read through this prospectus for more information about the school, before you submit your application for enrollment. Thank you for visiting our site and showing an interest in applying for an account. It is very important that you read the following information before continuing to sign up.
First of all while you should feel welcome to look through the application process, characters should not be created on the spot. Read through all the information we are giving you, then go away and think about the type of person you want to make and to roleplay.
Secondly its important to realise this is not an instant sign up process. Filling in the fields with random or even just basic information, will not gain you access to the site. Each application is carefully read and individually processed. Sometimes several alterations are required before your application will be accepted.
It is also important to note that we strongly recommend that all new people on the site begin at First Year. By doing this it gives you a much more realistic basis for learning, both in and out of roleplay. If you have used the site before, we still recommend starting at either 4th Year or 6th Year, especially if you begin in September. These are two realistic times that people would transfer to the school, needing only the school's syllabus and acredited defence status as reasoning. Of course you can transfer to Deckleswood at any time and any age, but you must remember to keep your reasoning realistic.
You should also be aware that for admin purposes, accounts are only accepted onto the site at the beginning of each school term (September, January and May in roleplay dates). Because one week in real time is the equivalent to one month in Deckleswood time, you may some times have to wait as much as four weeks in order to gain access.
You will now be taken on to the application process. Please make sure you continue to read everything thoroughly.
