Are there either examples, or a mention of this having happened, of students permanently transfering from one magical school to another in Potterverse?

Canon only please (books/JKR/Pottermore).

Please note that I am only asking about transfers, eg you must already be studying in one school. Therefore an example of Malfoys considering sending Draco to Drumstrang is not in scope, since that happened before he attended Hogwarts. Also, guest-studying during Tri-Wizard doesn't count as it wasn't permanent.

Also, if the answer is a "no", please provide evidence (other than "well I read the books before and I don't remember a single case like that", unless you have eidetic memory) from entire canon

I wonder, if a student transferred to Hogwarts, would he be sorted on the sorting ceremony together with the first years? If so, that would probably attract quite some attention. –  b_jonas Sep 15 '13 at 14:30

Are there canon examples of students permanently transfering from one school to another in Potterverse?

Well, no.

Although I don't see why would it not be possible anyway.

Could you please confirm the methodology you used to arrive at a "no" (as in, is your "no" a "not in canon because X", or "not in canon because I personally don't remember it in the books")? Thx –  DVK Dec 14 '12 at 21:39

"No" because I don't recall ever seeing this on canon. Sorry, I know this kind of answer sucks. –  Voldemort Dec 14 '12 at 22:28
