If you do a search on schools in this site, should give you quite a lot of information on the SF one as there have been lots of previous posts about it. Nothing wrong with the junior school in my opinion - Spanish state schools are different from UK ones, but if you live in Spain - you have to accept the way they teach and do things - otherwise you need an international school, which would be very expensive for two kids - and they won't learn Spanish as fast....
No two ways about it, you will need to personally go yourself to the school in the area where you live to register your children - there is no way, as far as Im aware, to do this from the UK. You will need to take a good translator if you don't speak English and book an appointment at the school beginning of September to start the process. Take your padron certificate - that's the first essential - take lots of passport photographs - that seems to be a requirement everywhere - and your childrens health cards - in other words, bring everything!!
Great age to bring your kids b.t.w. Just be advised that you will need private English lessons in a few years if you don't want them to fall behind with their English grammar, litrature etc. - this will be equally important for them in future years....
