If agreed, the school will be built on the former Rugeley Power Station site, now owned by ENGIE, which is being transformed into a new neighbourhood.
Designed by architect Glancy Nicholls, the £40m school project is designed to accommodate up to 420 primary and 750 secondary school pupils, as well as a 52-place nursery and 200-place sixth form.
The plans also include a multi-use games area, sports pitches, sports hall and car parking.
It will be run by the John Taylor Multi Academy Trust, which already runs a number of successful primary and secondary schools in Staffordshire.
The Department for Education is funding the school as part of the government’s Free Schools programme, along with a substantial contribution from ENGIE and contributions from Staffordshire County Council.
Subject to planning works are planned to begin next March, with the school planned for opening in September 2025.
