The schools are all bidding for cash from the Government’s £500m pot to fund school places in cities where there are huge shortfalls.
Bristol received the largest allocation of additional funding to a local authority area outside London.
The council anticipates that up to 5,000 extra primary school places will be needed in Bristol by 2015.
Several fast-track options have been advanced, including conversion of shops, offices and other buildings, or portable buildings on empty sites. The council will next week unveil which project will receive a share of £38.9m to buy land and buildings.
As part of the plans, Orchard School Bristol and Filton Avenue Infants’ School will merge to create a new primary school for north Bristol.
Talks have also begun to take over Redland Police station as part of an annexe to Filton and Orchard schools.
The council says this will be cheaper than building a new primary school.
