Gregor High School is a minor school in Girls und Panzer that is mentioned in supplemental material for the first time. In the manga Girls und Panzer: Ribbon Warrior the school participates in the Tankathlon tournament called The Cauldron.
Behavior & Policy
No mentions of their school policy or students behavior are made.
Their main force is the LT vz. 35 and the LT vz. 38 light tanks, with a few Panzer III Model N for additional firepower. A Hetzer modification kit has been fitted to one LT vz. 38, but due to budgetary restrictions only one model has been modified. They also possess some CKD AH-IV tankettes.
They are not used to be a part of a larger platoon so they may feel uneasy on advanced tactics due to their inexperience, low number of tanks and the lack of crews, but are willing to learn it from their allies.
The schoolship's appeareance is unknown.
Until now only the upper part of their sensha-dō uniform is seen. It consists of a white short-sleeved blouse with the sleeves being widened around shoulders and being laced up and ended around elbows. There is also a sleeveless black jacket on top of the blouse with two appliques of a caterpillar-like creature at bottom part.
Based in the landlocked city of Nara in its similarly named prefecture, Gregor High School, like many other schools, first began as a result of international cooperation and trade.
In Europe, Japanese pottery, lacquerware, and similar goods were highly sought-after items, so much so that European investors opened a facility in Japan to cope with the demand, utilizing the port of Hannan, Osaka Prefecture to export the manufactured goods not only to Europe but to domestic locations such as Kyoto and Osaka as well.
However in Czechoslovakia, the Japanese ideals of Bushido also spread along with the Japanese tableware, resulting in an increasing number of people traveling to Japan to learn more about its culture.
Today, Gregor High School enjoys a thriving foreign exchange program with students learning of another’s cultures, with Senshado existing as another way to promote international cooperation.

- Their logo consists of their name "Gregor" written between a puppet head and the puppeteer control bar over an irregular pentagon filled with Blue, White & Red.
- The name Gregor could be a reference to Czech tank commander Josef Gregor who was part of the 1st Czechoslovak Tank Brigade in USSR.
- The Puppet is a reference to the long history that Czech Republic had puppetry as it be traced deep into the early part of the Middle Ages.
- The filling of their logo rotated 90° to the left is a reference to the Czech flag.
- The label on Kafka's LT vz. 38's front cover reads 毒虫 which means "poisonous insect".
- Kafka is named after the famous Czech writer Franz Kafka.
- Mucha is named after the famous Czech painter Alfons Mucha. Because of this, Mucha's name should be spelled like "Moo-kha."
- Their uniform takes its inspiration in Czech folklore:
- The blouse is called "Rukávce" (spelling: Roo-kaaaaf-tse).
- The sleeveless black jacket is called "Kordula", which are more commonly wore by men.
- The caterpillar-like emblem at the bottom of their jacket may be a reference of the first tank-like vehicle made in Czechoslovakia called Kolohousenka which means "wheeled caterpillar".
- The fact that Gregor is unused to advanced tactics in a large group may be a reference to the fact that Czechoslovakia had very few/near no experience in armored warfare, due to its annexation by Germany in 1938-39.
