Planning permission has been granted for the temporary accommodation for the new school on the site of the former Littlemoss High School, adjacent to Daisy Nook.
But the first students will have to spend two years in temporary classrooms while the permanent buildings are constructed.
The initial build will include two two-storey classrooms, a single-storey classroom and dining hall. An outdoor sports and social area, as well as a car park, will also be built.
Head of sporting excellence at the new school will be former Manchester City and Scotland striker Paul Dickov.
School admission criteria is to be based around distance to avoid clashes with current secondary schools in the borough, who work with feeder schools.
