Sir Percy Scott Worthington (31 January 1864–15 July 1939) was an English architect.

He was born in Crumpsall, Manchester, the eldest son of the architect Thomas Worthington. He was educated at Clifton College, Bristol and Corpus Christi College, Oxford, where he graduated in 1887, and he qualified as an architect in 1890. He became a partner in his father's firm the following year. In his early years he was interested in the Arts and Crafts movement and this was reflected in the Unitarian Chapel, Liverpool, which he designed with his father. From 1904 he became more involved in the revival of classicism. He was awarded the gold medal of the Royal Institute of British Architects in 1930 and was knighted in 1935. He died at his home in Mobberley, Cheshire, in 1939.[1]
