Wennington School, founded by the Quaker educationalist Kenneth C. Barnes, was a co-educational and ultimately progressive boarding school.
It was originally founded in 1940 in Lonsdale, Lancashire, England. Early governors included Alfred Schweitzer and John Macmurray.[not in citation given] 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.
