A new £23m school could be built in Perth and Kinross in a bid to address the region's fast expanding population.
The building could provide accommodation for 1100 secondary pupils and a two-stream primary school as well as a nursery.
Perth and Kinross Council is to seek funding from the Scottish Government for the project.
A site for the school has not yet been identified but could sit to the north of Perth.
The proposal for the school is set to go before the councils's strategic policy and resources executive on Wednesday.
Council leader Ian Miller said: "With the restoration of city status, we are now looking to ensure that facilities of the standard to be expected in a city are in place.
"We also have to plan for the longer-term, giving consideration to the projected demographic situation and the anticipated growth in our local population."
He added that it has been identified that Perth and Kinross is Scotland's fastest growing local authority area and that Perth's new city status is expected to add to an already growing population.
