Since it was considered improper for young ladies to walk about without chaperons, Hogwarts provides chaperons through teachers and Head of Houses as well as other staff members. They are assigned to a location and whomever wants to go to that particular location will be escorted there in a group. Seeing as the groups could be rather large, it would be easy to escape from the chaperon's view, though is greatly frowned upon and could result in a detention. Third years and higher are allowed to go on the excursions. Students who have written permission from their parents/guardians are allowed to visit their families in Hogsmeade if there is a good reason, such as a family emergency, a wedding, or a funeral. As a note, students are not allowed to leave school for events like family dinners.
O.W.L.s are tests taken by all fifth years. N.E.W.T.s are tests taken by all seventh years. Students not enrolled in the subject writing on a given day will have that day free of classes, to study for other subjects.
Quidditch game outcomes (unplayed) are determined by die rolls, coin flips, and player ability.
Charming uses house points to determine the winner of the House Cup.
