Sporting facilities could soon be enhanced at Windsor Girls' School after a proposal was submitted for a new £1.3m sports hall.
Bosses have applied to the Royal Borough to build a state-of-the-art facility for students at the 690-pupil school and community members to use.
A hall with four badminton courts, changing rooms and storage areas will be built if approved.
Headteacher Gill Labrum said: "We have had a shortage of sports facilities for many years and indoor facilities have not increased with the increase in the number of students. For the number of pupils we have - we are really lacking facilities."
Mrs Labrum said half the cash for the project the school has saved and the rest they hope to fund by selling a plot of land. She said she hopes if everything goes to schedule the development could be started in the summer so it leaves a London 2012 legacy.
The borough is expected to make a decision by March 21.
