This article combines the Muggle and Magical Schools (Harry Potter) pages.
The article Spells and spell-like magic in the world of Harry Potter, formerly List of spells in Harry Potter that ended up losing the list, has been merged here.It had a talk page, with no open discussions, viewable here.
The article states, "There is no mention in any of the books of an afterlife consisting of heaven or hell, or of any religion." Yet there are references to celebrating Christian holidays: Christmas and Easter as official school holidays where many return home. I suggest omitting the end of the sentence: "or of any religion." That phrase adds nothing to this particular entry.
The paragraph states that "wizards and witches can resist certain spells with the power of their own sheer will." I am pretty sure that the Imperius Curse, which is used as an example, is the only spell that can be resisted by willpower but I did not edit because I am not sure. (Though I did change it from "...can resist a spell..." since most spells cannot be resisted with one's mind, rather they need to be dodged or stopped with a counter spell, for example, "Expelliarmus".)
