Paige didnt attached herself to Harry and Ron like her sister did, but one night when Harry was out to do an duel with Draco Malfoy , Hermione forced Paige to come along, only to be chased down by Argus Flich , tipped off by Malfoy, to the third corridor - forbidden to students - where they came face-to-face with Fluffy , a three-headed dog belonging to Hagrid . Later on, she stated that Fluffy was standing on something, an trap door, Hermione noticed, Ron and Harry did not.
The friendship became stronger after Paige hearing about Harry and Ron saving Hermione from an troll in Hallowe'een, 1991, went over to Harry and Ron, and thanking them for saving her sister's life, and then the four of them became best friends.
Paige set Professor Snape's robes on fire on Harry's first Quidditch match when she thought she was jinxing Harry's broom. In Spring, Hagrid, a friend of Paige's through Harry, manage to procure a dragon egg. Paige, along with Hermione, Harry and Ron, helped Hagrid care for the beast which Hagrid named Norbert. When the dragon was discovered, Paige, Hermione and Harry helped smuggle it out of the school to some friends of Ron's elder brother, Charlie Weasley. During the night, they were found, and given detention.
Fearing that Lord Voldemort would return if the Philosopher's Stone, which Harry, Ron, Hermione and Paige had divined was hidden in the school, was stolen, Harry decided to steal the Stone first. When he told Paige that he could go on alone, she rebuffed him. After the trio passed Fluffy, Hermione freed Ron from a patch of Devil's Snare he had dropped into by conjuring Lumos Solem. Paige got herself and Harry through a challenge involving a Potion riddle. Paige using her logic to figure out the riddle and let Harry go forward without her, as there was only enough potion for one person. Later, at the Farewell Feast in the Great Hall, Paige, Hermione, Harry, Ron and Nevill were all awarded extra House Potins for bravery and herosim, which won Gryffindor the House Cup.
Paige had written several letters to Harry before her second year at Hogwarts, all of which were intercepted by Dobby, as the house-elf wanted Harry to believe that his friends had forgotten him in order to prevent his return to Hogwarts. She, Hermione and their parents also accompained Harry and the Weasley Family to Diagon Alley to shop for school.
It was during her second school year that Paige and Hermione first encountered the prejudice and hatred surrounding their blood status, when Draco Malfoy called Paige a "filthy little Mudblood" and Paige, who had learnt about the offensive term, sent an nasty jinx to him. On the Qudditch field, when Draco called Hermione an Mudblood, Ron tried to curse him, but was backfired because of his damaged wand. Paige told her sister and friends that Draco had called her that earlier in the year, and had jinx him.
Paige was disgusted when Hermione had an crush on Gilderoy Lockhart, who became that year's Defence Against the Dark Arts Professor. Paige had always thought was an idiot, self-obsessive, and when she figured out he was an fraud, Paige told him to back off, Lockhart blackmailed her, but when his memory was oblivated, he had forgotten.
On Halloween, 1992, Paige attended Nearly Headless Nick's Death-Day party with Hermione, Harry and Ron. While upstairs, she followed Harry, who claimed to be hearing voices. They discovered the caretaker's cat, Mrs Norris, was petrified. The walls were vandalised. Paige and Hermione began spending all of their free time in the Hogwarts Library after she saw the vandalism on the corridor walls, which had said that the Chamber of Secrets had been re-opened. Paige had listened to what Professor Binns, the History of Magic Professor, had said about the Chamber of Secrets.
When Harry proposed the theory that Draco Malfoy was the heir of Slytherin, Paige thought of an potion that could work, but was breaking fifty school rules, as Hermione agreed and check Moste Potente Potions book out of the library, using an note from Professor Lockhart. Hermione and Paige brewed the potion in Moaning Mrytle's bathroom, as no one used it.
Hermione was unfortunate to join Harry and Ron, and as Paige had detention, Harry and Ron were able to use the potion, and transform into Gregory Goyle and Vincent Crabbe, respectively, and had gotten the information they needed.
Paige was with Hermione, when the day Hermione was attacked by an Basilisk, the monster that has been petrifing everyone, and Hermione told Paige to close her eyes, and when she did opened them up, she saw Hermione on the ground, frozen. Paige found Professor McGonagall, and was in the Hospital Wing, staring at Hermione, as Ron and Harry came in. Harry comforted Paige.
Determined to get Hermione back, Paige helped Ron and Harry, even joining them with Lockhart down to the Chamber of Secrets. Paige was with Harry when the wall collapsed after Lockhart backfired spell, and Paige joined Harry on. Paige had met Tom Riddle, who is in fact; Lord Voldemort; and she helped Harry killed the basilisk and Tom Riddle's memory.
Paige was happy with Hermione back after being given the Mandrake Restorative Draught, and Paige began having feelings towards Harry, as he has done to her.
