Farney Close is inspected yearly by Ofsted Social Care and about every three years by Ofsted Education and it has a very successful track record. The last nine reports say that we are ‘Outstanding’.

The Joint Education & Care Ofsted Inspection report stated that  '...school and residential staff work exceptionally well together and arrangements for students’ welfare, health and safety are outstanding so that once settled, students thrive in the very safe learning and residential environments.This holistic care, together with outstanding teaching and an excellent curriculum, results in outstanding achievement for most students, and in their outstanding behaviour and overall spiritual, moral, social and cultural development'. and that  "...The school's vision that pupils will become "the best versions of themselves" is deep routed and inspiring...'


The school has a very strong and unique record of regularly achieving
outstanding Ofsted reports for both its education and care provisions.
