Re: A Possible Voldemort Takeover of Hogwarts

I also believe there are anti-dark wizard spells put on Hogwarts as protection, so any attempt Voldemort might make to take over Hogwarts would prove difficult.
It doesn't seem that there are any anti-dark protective spells on Hogwarts, seeing as how Voldemort came in after he had already become dark, so did all the DEs last year, as well as Draco, if he is truly bad. I also believe there will be a significant amount of action at Hogwarts, possibly even school, because in a quote, the one in which JK tells us about the epilogue, she explains that it will detail their lives after they leave school. This could mean after they leave school after the final battle, but the US cover seems to indicate a final battle in some other place.

This is intriguing, explaining how the final battle could be there, but I think he would meet resistance there, in the form of Harry, the rest of the trio and possibly the Order. The welcoming light coming out of the castle on the back of the UK Children version does appear to indicate that Hogwarts is safe for most of the book.
