farm??

Do you mean forms? i.e. a smaller intake (or, at least, a school which divides its intake of whatever size into fewer subdivisions?).

I can’t comment on schools in your area, bu please keep in mind whilst a small school may have attractions when a child is small and no specialist teachers are required, a small secondary can have limitations. Once DCs get older they develop more complex interests and having a wide pool of friends and influences can be great.

Also smaller schools may not have specialist science teachers or language teachers, the curriculum and clubs offered may be limited. Some smaller schools struggle financially and can be at risk if too small.

I think this is very true- small independent primaries can be delightful and very good for the children, however children I knew who went to small seniors didn't fare so well, no sixth form, no specialist teachers for some subjects often minimal sports facilities - some did fine and moved to good sixth forms. Also agree with the financial risk - old small schools on large sites can have lots of expensive buildings and land to keep up.
