It was suggested here many months ago that a schools merger was in the air and now pupils from Ellington girls school and Hereson boys could find themselves together from September 2008.
Parents of children at both schools have received letters telling them of plans to move all pupils to a £9 million site in Pysons Road.
Ellington will move in on April 27. Boys from Hereson will be phased in between 2008 and 2010.
Hereson head teacher Tony Hamson said: "We have to have a consultation with parents first. It is very early. I have only known about the idea since just before Christmas. It is a proposal at the moment."
The move is due to falling school numbers, according to both Mr Hamson and Ellington head Cathy Smith.
