A core class (compulsory until O.W.L.) taught at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Potions was the study of magical ingredients and brewing potions, taught in the Hogwarts dungeons. Students would study potions such as the Shrinking Solution, Amortentia and the Draught of Peace. Whilst Harry Potter was at Hogwarts, he was largely taught by Severus Snape, followed by Horace Slughorn. Harry’s relationship with Snape was a difficult one and it meant that as a student he never particularly enjoyed Potions lessons very much. Alas, for students like Harry who wanted to become an Auror, Potions was an integral lesson to take forwards to N.E.W.T level.
