OUR VISION

At Farney Close we strive for all our children and young people to meet their full academic, social, emotional and physical potential through building solid foundations during this chapter in their lifelong learning journey.

Farney Close is an independent residential and day special school for boys and girls aged 9-18. Our charity status means that we are able to provide young people with an experience that helps and supports them in moving forward with their academic and social learning. For 75 years the school has had a focus on supporting young people to achieve their potential.

Based in the heart of West Sussex, the school provides both day and residential care Monday to Friday during term time for young people all over the South East and London.

Our vision for Farney Close School is underpinned by a set of values-based aims which we endeavour to live out each and every day.
