Burton Stone Lane County Secondary Modern School

This girls' school, sometimes known as Water Lane School, was under construction in 1939 in Evelyn Crescent on the Water Lane estate. The building was continued slowly and completed in a modified form for opening in October 1942. The senior girls' department from Shipton Street School was transferred and formed the nucleus of the school. There was accommodation for 320 girls, and in 1943 104 were enrolled. The building was completed in 1945. There were 560 girls enrolled in 1956.
