Registering for State School Spain

Registering for a state school in Spain

Registering for a state school in SpainWhen you arrive in Spain you may be looking to register your children into a Spanish state school. This can be a complex process but once you accept the Spanish way of doing things, you should be fine.

1.  The first place to go is the Culture House (Casa Cultura) or Education Department of the Town Hall where you collect a form in order to register the children. Take with you, your passport, the child's passport and proof of where you are living (such as a rental contract).

2.  Take your completed form to the Town Hall, Estadistica Office. (There will be a small fee fees)

3.  Return to the Town Hall the next day to collect the forms which have now been stamped.

4.  Take the forms back to the Culture House where they keep the forms and give you a list of your nearest schools.

You apply for a place at your nearest school and when you go to the school it will pay you to take a translator, while teachers can sometimes speak English, they usually choose not to!

When you go to the school, take with you:

Copy of birth certificate for the child

Copy of passport for the child

Copy of parents passports

2 passport photographs

Filled in application form

Padron paperwork (from Town Hall)

Medical check paper

(The school will also require a cursory Medical Check-up to be carried out by the local doctor, this is simply a height, weight check and to see if your child's vaccinations are up to date. The Doctor will issue a paper to say your child has passed the medical check, take this paper to the school for their records.)

The school will then give you a list of the required text books and equipment that you will need to purchase for your child. The books will cost around 150 euros per child.

I believe for both. You may be best contacting the preferred school or the town hall closest to you for the exact dates for registration x

Hi Stoyanka, the enrolment for September is usually between February and May. This is usually done via the local town hall or the school itself. More information here for you x https://www.benidormseriously.com/education-in-spain-state-or-private-...
