Wennington School, founded by the Quaker educationalist Kenneth C. Barnes, was a co-educational and ultimately progressive boarding school.


It was founded in 1940 in Lonsdale, Lancashire, England. Early governors included Alfred Schweitzer and John Macmurray. During the Second World War the school was housed in Wennington Hall and the end of the war relocated to Ingmanthorpe Hall near Wetherby, Yorkshire where it remained until its closure in 1975.

Headmasters included translator and poet Brian Merrikin Hill. The building was used in episodes of the television series The Darling Buds of May.
