Hogwarts School is located in Scotland, according to the author of the fictional novel series, J.K. Rowling. Though no exact location is given within Scotland in the novels, the feature film Prisoner of Azkaban. Magical students between the ages of 11 and 18 attend the school each year to sharpen their skills in witchcraft and wizardry, taking classes such as potions and divination.
While attending Hogwarts, students are split into four different resident houses. Each house is named for a founding member of Hogwarts school. Among those is Slytherin House, named for Hogwarts founder Salazar Slytherin. He prized children from pure-blood magic families and looked down on muggles, or half-bloods who came from families with normal human parents.
