If you’re wondering which Hogwarts house you’ll wand-er into, then take our accurate and in depth Harry Potter Hogwarts House Quiz and we'll put you into the Hogwarts house you belong to.

The magical sorting hat sorts Hogwarts students into the school’s four houses every year, based on their traits and personality. It's the ultimate Harry Potter quiz. So where do you fit in when it comes to the houses of the world's most famous school of witchcraft and wizardry?

For some more ruthless characters, like Draco Malfoy, Slytherin is the only house for them! Some loyal characters find Hufflepuff is their calling. Some of the story's wisest characters find themselves in Ravenclaw. For heroes Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley and Harry Potter, it's all about Gryffindor!

To find out more about what each house will look like for you, read on.

Are you a Gryffindor?

• The Gryffindor house colours are red and gold and are connected to fire.

• Gryffindors are courageous and brave!

• Their mascot is a lion. Makes sense.

• If your zodiac sign is Aries, Leo or Sagittarius you’d be best suited to Gryffindor!

• The Gryffindor Common Room is can be found in the Faculty Tower of Hogwarts.

• Gryffindor House's ghost is Nearly Headless Nick

• Spiderman actress Zendaya is in Gryffindor house!

You could be in Ravenclaw house

• Ravenclaw's house colours are blue and bronze and the house is connected most strongly to air.

• Ravenclaws are intelligent, creative, wise, witty and value learning.

• Their mascot is an eagle

• The Ravenclaw Common Room is can be found in the Ravenclaw tower.

• Ravenclaw House's ghost is the Grey Lady!

• Famous Ravenclaws include Luna Lovegood.

• IRL, actor Emma Watson is a Ravenclaw!

Are you in Slytherin?

• Slytherin’s house colours are green and silver – water colours.

• Slytherins are ambitious, resourceful and clever.

• Their mascot is a serpent.

• The Slytherin Common Room is can be found in the dungeon.

• Slytherin House's ghost is the Bloody Baron!

• Did you know, it’s a misunderstanding to call Slytherins bad or evil? This is because Gryffindor and Ravenclaw also produced bad wizards like Peter Pettigrew and Professor Quirrell.

Harry Potter joke: How do the Malfoys get into bed? They Slytherin!

• If you're in this house, you're in good company as pop superstar 'bad guy' Billie Eilish is a Slytherin and has dressed as one before.

Maybe you're a Hufflepuff...

• The Hufflepuff house colours are yellow and black and Hufflepuffs tend to be hard-working, kind, loyal and patient. But they can be seen as naïve and even too nice.

• However, famous Hufflepuffs include Newt Scamander and Helga Hufflepuff – one of the greatest witches of her age!

• Their mascot is a badger.

• The Hufflepuff Common Room is can be found beneath the Great Hall.

• Hufflepuff House's ghost is the Fat Friar!

• Hard worker Channing Tatum is a Hufflepuff too!

Which Hogwarts house do you belong to, then?

You may be brave, courageous, honest or you may be sneaky, disruptive, clever, ambitious or wise. Or a mix of all of them.
