The local area guide to living in Warwickshire

Warwickshire is a beautiful county, landlocked in the West Midlands, and surrounded by counties such as Leicestershire and Oxfordshire. Formerly containing larger cities such as Coventry, which has now been drawn into the West Midlands, the county now consists of small, but bustling, towns and districts such as Warwick, Rugby and Stratford upon Avon. The county town of Warwick is historically relevant and contains various landmarks, whilst the medieval town of Stratford upon Avon is better known for being the 16th century birthplace of the Bard himself, William Shakespeare.

Information about the local residents

Whilst Warwickshire is an atypically affluent county, this varies throughout the districts. Stratford upon Avon is the richest area, whilst the average wage in areas such as Bedworth are slightly less high. In the 2011 census, the population of the county was estimated at 546,000 - this has since increased steadily to approximately 548,729 in mid-2013. Of those figures, 60% of the population of Warwickshire are thought to be of working age. Whilst the majority of Warwickshire's population identifies as White-British, there are minority groups scattered around the county; Rugby and Warwick are reported as having the most diverse communities with 1 in every 10 residents originating outside the UK.

Nearby schools

Those who adopt a more old-school approach to the education system will be delighted that two of the districts in the area have retained the grammar school system. Pupils are required to sit the eleven-plus examination in order to achieve entry into one of the Ofsted-rated 'outstanding' schools.

There are a good mix of public and private schools, many of which have received an 'Outstanding' in their respective Ofsted reports. These include public schools Kenilworth School and St Benedict's School, along with private schools such as Rugby School which has been reported to be one of the top rated schools in the country.

The University of Warwick, whilst now considered a part of the West Midlands, was historically located in Warwickshire, and is a highly-rated university that has consistently topped UK league tables. The establishment itself is close for students wishing to undertake studies in the University.

Getting around

The M1, M6, M40 and M45 all run through the heart of Warwickshire, providing great transport links around the UK. Local residents can also take advantage of the railway lines, Warwick and Hatton are both served by the Chiltern Mainline which links between major cities Birmingham and London. For commuters, this journey to London by train is under 2 hours and does not require any changes to travel into the heart of the capital city.

Most of the county can benefit from regular and reliable bus services which run in and around the county. Two family run coach services also provide transport to the larger cities in the surrounding areas, including school transportation for local children.

For avid shoppers, Warwickshire is conveniently located nearby various large towns and cities, which provide excellent shopping opportunities in which shops of every type can be located.

In Warwick itself can be found a racecourse and St Nicholas Park, which provides plenty of family-friendly activities.
