Sounds like TripMode would do what you want:

It lets you selectively allow apps to access your wi-fi connection. 
Its main purpose is to prevent apps from using up one's data 
allotment when tethered to a mobile device, but it works with any 
wi-fi connection (and remembers whether it's been activated for a 
given network).
