Warrington Academy, active as a teaching establishment from 1756 to 1782, was a prominent dissenting academy, that is, a school or college set up by those who dissented from the state church in England. It was located in Warrington (then part of Lancashire, now within Cheshire), effectively moved to Manchester where Manchester New College was its successor institution, and led in time to the formation of Harris Manchester College, Oxford.
