Naming the Line workshops - For primary schools

The Heart of England Community Rail Partnership would like to work with local communities to help choose a new name for the railway line between Nuneaton and Leamington Spa. This is a key rail line linking North and South Warwickshire with Coventry, where there are many fantastic attractions that we want to shine a light on.

Schools along the line are invited to take part in this special project through a programme of workshops designed to support the National Curriculum targets for English and Geography. The workshops will culminate in a competition to decide on the new name for the Nuneaton-Leamington line.

 For local schools, there are 3 ways to get involved:

Workshop and trip:

Aimed for KS2, the CRP delivers a 2-hour workshop looking at what makes the Nuneaton-Leamington line special. For schools who sign up to these workshops, we will also arrange

a trip out on the line for the students. Spaces for this option are limited and will be offered on a first come, first served basis. Trips will be limited to one class per school.


The CRP delivers an assembly to multiple classes or to the whole school, outlining the competition and touching upon the subjects of tourism, rail safety and sustainability. Assemblies can be tailored to fit in with school timetables.


Schools can access our downloadable resources and lesson plans to teach their own sessions around the project from heartcommunityrail.org.uk/nametheline 

If you would like to book us in to deliver a workshop, an assembly or to receive the resources pack, please email: HeartCRP@warwickshire.gov.uk  Full details of the competition and school engagement can be found at heartcommunityrail.org.uk/nametheline
