Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry was founded by Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Salazar Slytherin and Rowena Ravenclaw in the year 990AD. It has been seven hundred years since then, and it brings Hogwarts great joy that our school has come so far, becoming the most prestigious school of magic in all the world.
However,time are hard. The International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy has been signed by the International Confederation of Wizards. These are dark times, there is no denying, and the priority of Hogwarts is to safeguard the young Witches and Wizards from the trials, executions and dangers of the outside world.
