The news comes after both Cannock Chase Council and Lichfield District Council approved outline plans in January to transform the site into 2,300 homes, housing for the elderly, commercial buildings and a primary school.

The fifth demolition using explosives brought down another part of the former power station in February.

Now Cannock Chase Council has approved revised plans submitted by the site's owners ENGIE for the redevelopment of its site, which includes the addition an all-through school serving nursery pupils up to post-16 students.

The John Taylor Multi-Academy Trust is seeking Government support for an all-through school on the site that would provide 52 nursery places, a two form entry primary school, a five form entry secondary school and post-16 provision for up to 200 students. The school would occupy 7.85 hectares of land.

The all-through school would be located in the centre of the site, near a proposed solar meadow providing solar energy to the redevelopment.

Lichfield District Council will be discussing the plans on Monday.
