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
Newburgh, sometimes known as Beaumont, were a powerful, nationally important Anglo-Norman family who came over at the conquest. They took their family name from their main Norman estate at Neubourg which lies between Harfleur and Rouen.
They held the earldom from 1088 until 1253 when the male line lied out.
