If planning approval is granted, the the school in Mill Lane will provide 75 places for young people aged 11-16 with social, emotional and mental health needs.
The school will also support children with autism and speech, language and communication needs.
Councillor Patrick Molyneux, cabinet member for education, economy and skills at Gloucestershire County Council, said: "We're committed to making sure all children get the education they deserve, which is why we're investing over £100million into our county's schools.
"There is strong support for increasing the special educational needs provision in the county and this school will provide much-needed places for local children."
Representatives from the council, principal contractors EG Carter, architect Robothams and the academy sponsor Learn@Multi Academy Trust will be available to answer questions and listen to any feedback on the school or designs.
Arrangements will be made to make sure that social distancing can be observed with face coverings and contact details required.
The plans will remain on display at Brockworth Community Centre until September 15.
