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

The John Dudley was created earl of Warwick in 1547 is better known as the duke of Northumberland is better known as Edward VI’s protector and his attempts to crown his daughter-in-law Lady Jane Grey instead of Mary Tudor. His son, Robert, was Elizabeth I’s favourite.
