Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy is the British school of magic which featured in the Harry Potter series, and likely will feature in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery.




The following is from Pottermore, told from the point of view of the Sorting Hat:

A thousand years or more ago,
When I was newly sewn,
There lived four wizards of renown,
Whose names are still well known:
Bold Gryffindor, from wild moor,
Fair Ravenclaw, from glen,
Sweet Hufflepuff, from valley broad,
Shrewd Slytherin, from fen.
They shared a wish, a hope, a dream,
They hatched a daring plan
To educate young sorcerers
Thus Hogwarts School began.
Now each of these four founders
Formed their own house, for each
Did value different virtues
In the ones they had to teach.
By Gryffindor, the bravest were
Prized far beyond the rest;
For Ravenclaw, the cleverest
Would always be the best;
For Hufflepuff, hard workers were
Most worthy of admission;
And power-hungry Slytherin
Loved those of great ambition.
While still alive they did divide
Their favourites from the throng,
Yet how to pick the worthy ones
When they were dead and gone?
’Twas Gryffindor who found the way,
He whipped me off his head
The founders put some brains in me
So I could choose instead!
Now slip me snug about your ears,
I’ve never yet been wrong,
I’ll have a look inside your mind
And tell where you belong!

~ Sorting Hat

The physical school is located in the Scottish Highlands. Enrollment consists of Students from great Britain and Ireland. The school is funded by the ministry of magic. Unfortunately, like most wizarding schools it's exact location is a mystery as the school is enchanted to be unplottable. It is believed to have been established some time in the 10th century, and is considered to be one of the finest wizarding schools in the world. Enrollment is determined at birth and students are accepted at the age of eleven. In the event of a muggle-born student or a student without any prior knowledge of the magical world, a representative from the school will be dispatched to help the student. The school motto is Latin for never tickle a sleeping dragon.
