In Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, we know that very few teachers remain at Hogwarts from Harry's days there. Who are the new Hogwarts teachers? I do not own a copy of the book, so I can't look directly. I know that Neville Longbottom now teaches Herbology. Who are the rest of the new teachers/staff?


3 Answers 3


Prime timeline - The teachers we know about are

  • McGonagall- Headmistress.
  • Neville- Herbology.
  • Madam Hooch- Flying.
  • Hagrid- Groundskeeper, Care of Magical Creatures (he isn't mentioned as a teacher in Cursed Child but in "19 years later" he is.)

In the second timeline

  • Hermione is added as DADA.

In the third timeline we only know about

  • Snape - Potions
  • Umbridge- Headmistress.

All timelines - teachers that probably stayed

  • Professor Binns
  • Flitwick.

    I've played with the formatting a little in order to make the answer more readable. You might also want to consider adding some supporting quotes.

    I haven't read the play script yet but what is this about timelines? Is time travel/splitting timelines a major plot point of the play?

    @TylerH Yes. The main plot of the play is having next generation Hogwarts students exploring (and interfering with) alternative timelines in the past.

    I have read Cursed Child, but it's been a while. Also, I believe that Charity was fed to Nagini in Deathly Hallows. Welcome to the site tho! A general rule here is to cite references/source material when offering an answer, and research first. That's alright though, everyone had a first time! Commented Sep 23, 2021 at 14:23
