Reach4 Academy Trust, appointed to run the school, has unveiled two artist impressions of the school, planned for the site of an old housing estate and incorporating the old Pye Bank School building.

The school, for youngsters age three to 18, will take up site around Andover Street, and will involve a new building and the refurbishment of the former Pye Bank School.

It was formerly home to a 1960s housing estate that has since been demolished.

Detailed plans for the school are expected to be submitted in the spring.

The council has already applied for permission to clear the ground, which it says is 'imperative' to allow the school to be built on time.

It will be one of two new schools due to be open in 2018, with the second, a £25m secondary and sixth form, planned to be built off Carterknowle Road.
