The Wundrous Society, also known as WunSoc, is Nevermoor's most elite organization and institution. Those who are lucky enough to attend the school are lifelong members of the Society, whose membership brings respect, honor, and celebrity-like status for many. Each member receives a golden 'W' pin—to show non-Society (or Unwun) members who they are—and a golden 'W' imprint over the fingerprint on the index finger—to help Society members recognize each other.

In order to join the society, you must first be chosen by a patron, a person already in the Wondrous Society, and then pass a series of trials against hundreds of other applicants, of which only nine children will be chosen (who become a Unit). The first three trials differ each year, but the final trial, the Show Trial, is always the same: the child shows off their knack in front of a huge audience. Once you get into the Wundrous Society, you are given a little golden pin in the shape of a 'W' before the inauguration ceremony. Following the ceremony, a golden 'W' is imprinted into the skin of the index finger, which will distinguish you to other members.
For the first five years of education, the student is referred to as a junior scholar, studying almost exclusively at the campus. It is during these years that the Unit is assigned a Hometrain and conductor with their very own Wunderground station. The Hometrain acts as their transport to and from classes with the conductor acting as a guide helping the scholars navigate their education. The conductor helps organize class schedules and gets equipment for the scholars as well.
Depending upon the nature of the knack, the scholar is assigned into one of two schools at the Society: the Mundane Arts (for practical, public-facing knacks) or the Arcane Arts (for magical/supernatural, private-facing knacks). The Mundane is the larger sector, with the Arcane only containing almost a third as many members as the Mundane sector. There is a third school exclusively for Wundersmiths that deals with the Wundrous Arts.
