The school is based in Peel Hall Street, Deepdale, and hopes to expand in the city.
The proposed two-storey building will be adjacent to the existing Deepdale Mill, on a brownfield area that is currently occupied by two industrial units.

Included in the design is general teaching classrooms, ICT classrooms, Science classrooms, soft and hard play areas, a staff room and reception area with staff and administration spaces.
The building will be in an L-shaped footprint and will create two wings with a staircore at each end of the building, and with external double doors accessing the school-yard’s safe zone.
A lift is provided close to the main entrance.
Three options have been considered for the site, with the ‘preferred option’ being a new building perpendicular to the main road, and stand-alone with the potential for an external link.
Preston City Council’s planning officers will now decide whether to grant permission for the building to go ahead.
