Priority will be given in accordance with the categories outlined below (with 1 being the highest priority).  In the event of the need for a final tie breaker in Category 1 - 6, distance from home to school will be considered. Within each category distance will be measured in a straight line from the centre point of the child's address to the centre point of the school as defined by the Ordnance Survey, the national mapping agency, using the Local Authority's computerised measuring system, with those living closer to the school receiving the higher priority. Starting with those children at the top, places are then given out until the set number for the school is reached.

St Peter's RC High School has been commissioned by Manchester Local Authority to have specialist resourced mainstream provision for up to ten children who have a statement for autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) and/or specific language impairment (SLI). Although the school is responsible for the teaching and learning of these ten children it does not control the admission of places to the provision. These decisions are made by the Local authority which has a multi agency panel to agree placements in the provisions in Manchester
