Scholarship is compulsory and free for everyone in Navarra between the ages of 6 to 16.

The requests for grants and scholar assistance for the canteen, transport, school materials, etc. can be processed through the school itself.
REGISTERING PRODECURES AND TEACHING MODELS
In the educational establishments there are pre-inscription and registering periods (from February to April), and an extraordinary period (at the beginning of September). Anyway, the families that arrive to the village once the course has started, they can register their over 3-years-old children going to the school. In the chosen establishment information will be given about the required documentation.

D Model: Basque model, with Spanish as a subject, and introduction to English since pre-school.
“A” ELP : Spanish model, with Basque language as a subject, and introduction to English since pre-school.
