A project team set up to look at options for St Bees School in West Cumbria say it could reopen in 2017.
The independent school closes to pupils on Friday because of falling student numbers.
Governors had originally hoped it would reopen next year, but that now looks unlikely.
Anthony Fox is leading the project team and told ITV Border:
The project team's aspiration is to have some form of education on site at St Bees at the start of academic year 2017/18.
"However none of us can give any guarantees that that will be the case because there are a range of factors and contingencies relevant to shaping the future.
"It should be clearly understood by all concerned that whatever it is that, hopefully, starts up again in 2017 will be a different institution from the current school."
