The Coleshill School came into being in 1971 with the amalgamation of Coleshill Grammar School and Coleshill High School.
The houses of the Grammar School – Clinton, Montford, Digby and Wingfield (named after families who had owned the manor of Coleshill) were replaced by four new ones.
These were Newburgh, Beauchamp, Dudley and Greville- named after families who had been earls of Warwick
Beauchamp held the earldom between 1268 and 1446 and key figures in the politics of the fourteenth and early fifteenth centuries. The most famous earl was Richard Beauchamp (d 1439), a respected and distinguished soldier in the Lancastrian invasions of France in 1415 and 1417. The Beauchamp Chapel in St Mary’s church, Warwick was built in his memory.
