A meeting is set to take place tonight to discuss the forming of a residents' association or action group against the controversial Furze Platt Senior School plans.
It will be held at Furze Platt War Memorial Hall in Furze Platt Road, Maidenhead, from 7pm.
A note entitled 'Hands off our greenbelt and school playing fields', encouraging people to attend, was dropped through the doors of homes near to the school site including those on the Cranbrook Drive estate.
The school is working with Summerleaze on the plans which could see it relocate to Spencers Farm by 2015.
The 'community campus' proposed would also include sports facilities and 320 new homes, with a further 380 houses suggested to replace the old school buildings.
Submissions about the plans have been made to the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead by the school and Summerleaze but a formal planning application has not yet been produced.
A petition against the plans at www.change.org/petitions/parent-stop-the-senior-school-relocation-plan has nearly 500 signatures.
Last week all three Furze Platt ward councillors confirmed their opposition to the plans.
