St. Grogory's Primary School was a Muggle primary school located in or near Little Whinging, Surrey, England named after Saint Grogory. The school's headmistress in the early 1990s was C. Roemmele.
Harry Potter attended St. Grogory's from the mid-late 1980s to early 1990s. He was teased for wearing broken spectacles, repaired with tape, and his cousin Dudley Dursley's old, oversized clothing. He also had no friends there since he was the favourite victim of Dudley, who was the most feared bully in the school, and his gang.
One time, Harry was being pursued by Dudley's gang and tried to escape from them by ducking behind some rubbish bins outside the school's kitchens, but unintentionally flew on top of the chimney instead. Headmistress Roemmele sent an "angry" letter to Harry's uncle and aunt, Vernon and Petunia Dursley, telling them that their nephew had been "climbing school buildings."
While there is no real St. Grogory, there is a St Gregory: Pope Gregory I. He is considered the patron saint of, among other things, students and teachers, making him a prime candidate to name a school after.
