Meeting to decide future of Bath's Culverhay school
A meeting in July could see Culverhay School, which is threatened with closure, saved by Bath council.
The authority is to hold a council meeting in July followed by a meeting of the cabinet to discuss what to do with the boys' school.
The previous Conservative council voted to close the school because of falling pupil numbers.
But the Liberal Democrats, who came into power in May, had said they would revoke the closure notice.
Make a decision
The school is to close to further admissions to Year 7 from September 2012 as part of a reorganisation of education in the city.
But Bath and North East Somerset Council has announced a full council meeting will debate the issue on 14 July.
The council will be able to recommend the closure is upheld or ask the authority's cabinet to reconsider the decision.
The cabinet is due to discuss the issue immediately after the council meeting and make a decision over the school's future.
If the school is saved, a notice to revoke the decision over the closure would be issued.
