- History Note: Causeway Lake School, Alma Street, Heath Town was erected in 1897 replacing an older building, which housed Causeway Lake Church School. The school was a branch of St James's School, Horseley Fields, being in the parish of St James's Wolverhampton.
The Boys School was separate until 1899 when it merged with the Girls department to become the mixed school.
The Mixed and Infants departments were merged in 1928. In 1931 the School was reorganised as a Junior and Infants' School. A nursery class was added in 1942.
The junior department of the school closed in July 1957 with the majority of pupils going to Woden Road School. The school continued as Causeway Lake Infants Nursery School. By January 1963 the school was an annexe of Woden Primary Infants School under the same headmistress. The school closed on 24 July 1963 but the building was used for a time as part of Wolverhampton Art College. It was demolished in 1963 when the Heath Town flats were built and replaced by a new school on the flats complex, originally called St Stephen's and later renamed Long Ley.
