An opportunity to help shape the design of the new Oldfield Primary School is being offered by the Royal Borough.
The school is relocating from its current site in Chiltern Road to a new site in Bray Road which is due to open in 2014.
The move has been motivated by the need to accommodate the increasing number of children living in the area.
The borough is now inviting interested parties to attend two 'engagement' events which will give people the chance to have their input on the new Bray Road site.
Views will be sought on a range of issues including the appearance of the new school and the arrangements of buildings on the site.
Cllr Phill Bicknell, cabinet member for children’s services, said:" The more people who offer constructive suggestions on the designs the more confident we can be that we are providing the facilities the community wants."
Officers from the borough and design team members from contractor Leadbitter will be on hand to answer any queries.
The first event will take place on Tuesday, February 12 from 3.30pm to 7pm at the school in Chiltern Road.
The second will be held at High Street Methodist Church in King Street from 5pm to 8.30pm on Wednesday, February 13.
