Braywick Court School has announced it will open with double the amount of space than it had originally thought.
The primary school is opening up on the site of the former Winbury Preparatory School in Hibbert Road in September.
Headteacher Gemma Donnelly said: “We have been working closely with the architects and planning department to develop the plans for the school.
"We are delighted to announce that we intend to open with more than twice the internal area and with a much larger external space than previously anticipated.
"Our reception pupils will enjoy a spacious, flexible, open plan learning environment with state-of-the-art facilities from day one. Lots of outdoor learning will take place in the large adjoining enclosed external area and our plans also include a small school hall which will be used for assemblies, indoor sports and activities, serving lunches and the many after-school clubs we will run."
Winbury's old reception class, positioned to the eastern edge of the site, will be refurbished between mid-July and mid-August, and this is where the reception class children will be based all year.
The second phrase, which sees the school incorporating Braywick Nature Centre, will begin after Christmas.
The full site plans will be available to view at a public consultation which will be held at Braywick Nature Centre on Tuesday, July 8, between 2pm-7.30pm.
The school will also publish the plans on their website, www.braywickcourtschool.co.uk
