The Active Learning Trust has announced a bid to open a new school in the town, which will educate children from the ages of four to 19.
If the bid is approved the school would open in September 2020, starting with an intake of up to 120 year seven students and continuing to roll out year groups up to its expected capacity of 1,050 students in the secondary school and sixth form.
The trust runs 21 schools across Cambridgeshire and Suffolk including in Beccles, Lowestoft and Pakefield.
The new school plan has been developed with Cambridgeshire County Council to help meet demand for secondary school places in the area.
