During the 1986–1987 school year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, fifth year Gryffindor student Emily Tyler impressively defeated an entire group of vampire bats with the Stunning Spell.
Vampire bats were studied by fifth years in Defence Against the Dark Arts in the 1991–1992 school year at Hogwarts, which was taught by Professor Quirinus Quirrell at the time. As Dolores Umbridge said in 1995 that Quirrell's classes were the only ones which would pass a Ministry inspection, vampire bats were likely part of the curriculum approved by the Ministry of Magic.
