Manchester City Council

Schools, education & childcare Waiting lists

Children starting at secondary school in September

We split these children into four categories:

Category one

Children who are looked after by a council, or have been in the past.

Category two

Children with exceptional medical or social needs. You need to have given us evidence of this when you applied. We then decide if it is an exceptional need.

Category three

Children who have a brother or sister, that lives with them, who will be at the same school when they start. This includes adopted siblings, step-siblings and other foster children. We don’t include children in the sixth-form.

Category four

All other children, prioritised by how near the school they live, measured in a straight line.
