Lindisfarne College was a private school or independent school. It was founded in 1891 in Westcliff-on-Sea in Essex, England. In 1940 Lindisfarne College moved from Westcliff to nearby Creeksea Place, but during the Second World War the building was requisitioned by the military and the school transferred to Newburgh Priory at Coxwold in Yorkshire.

In 1950 the school made its final move to Wynnstay in Ruabon, Wrexham, north Wales, which had once been the ancestral home of the Williams-Wynn family. The school itself closed due to insolvency in 1994, and its last home was converted into luxury apartments.
