Proposed plans for Braywick Court School have been unveiled at a public consultation.
The free school will make use of the old Winbury School buildings and the Braywick Nature Reserve, which will be relocated to the other side of its visitors' car park in Hibbert Road thanks to a £400,000 government grant.
The plans, which will join together the two existing buildings to create one larger structure, were put on display to the public at Braywick Nature Reserve on Tuesday, July 8.
A brick and timber finish is being proposed in an effort to help the school blend in with the current brickwork and surrounding environment.
There would be a large purpose-built hall and seven classrooms, the majority of which open directly onto external teaching spaces.
It would also include a new pathway, running between the proposed parents' car park in Braywick Sports Ground through the nature reserve, as part of the school's 'park and stride' scheme.
Headteacher of Braywick Court School, Gemma Donnelly, said: "We enjoyed meeting the many parents, local residents and other community members who took the time to attend the consultation event.
"We will take on board people's views and ideas to ensure that we create a school that is an integral part of our local community."
The proposals will be submitted to the Royal Borough later this month and if approval is granted, construction work could begin after Christmas.
