A Head Boy or Girl badge was given to each Head Boy and Head Girl at the beginning of every year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[1] These students were in their seventh year, and may well have been prefects previously, although that was not a prerequisite.

The badges were probably presented in a similar fashion to prefect badges, which was via owl post and were included alongside a list of school supplies.[7]

History

When Percy Weasley became Head Boy in 1993, his brothers Fred and George mocked him mercilessly, and even bewitched his badge to read "Bighead Boy".[1]
