Farnby Manor Secondary School was a school featured in Checkmate. You didn't have to pay to go there and it wasn't considered as good as Heathcroft High. Callie Rose McGregor Hadley wanted to go there because her best friend Nikki was going. Nikki's family were poor and couldn't afford Heathcroft and the two didn't want to split up. Callie's mum said that Callie couldn't go to Farnby and when they went to secondary school Callie and Nikki didn't see each other again.
