The spanish state schools start different times depending on which school and age but all the matriculations (paper work) is done either march or april. Hope this helps

Hi, yes they will be going to Spanish state school.. glad you gave me the heads up on the matriculations being March/April, can this be done from the UK or does it have to be in person?

The children will be 3,6 & 9 come Sept... any ideas when the start dates are? We have no idea which school as yet as it depends on what accommodation we can find/afford, hoping for Adeje but we'll have to look into more schools/areas.. any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Juniors start about the 6th/7th but the exact date will not be known until July August when the Canarian Gov. announces it. All junior schools start the same day. Those in ESO usually start a week later.
You need to apply in May but they have to find you places for your children. In the Adeje area I would try Adeje Casco but its smaller so more difficult. Ask young golfer on here as his little ones are in school in Adeje and I know he is very happy
