Introducing FFT

FFT is a non-profit company established in 2001, focussing solely on providing accurate and insightful information which enables pupils to achieve their full potential and schools to improve.

Nearly all secondary schools and over three quarters of primary schools use FFT to analyse school performance and set targets.  FFT provides dashboards and reports which analyse pupil results and pupil progress allowing school leaders and governors to evaluate past performance quickly and easily.  

Our estimates of future pupil performance are used by schools to set challenging targets for all pupils across all key subjects.   We provide data and analyses for primary schools (KS1 and KS2) and secondary schools (KS3, KS4 and KS5), and you can also download pupil and school data, including FFT estimates, to your MIS and pupil tracking systems. 

Support and training provided jointly by FFT and your Local Authority include free online training materials, training courses and local workshops and training events.

Introducing FFT Aspire

FFT Aspire
is our new data tool for schools and LAs which will replace FFT Live fully in autumn 2014, though some modules of FFT Aspire are available now.  FFT Aspire will provide schools with a broader and richer set of data using the latest curriculum and accountability measures. 

At the same time, Aspire will be easier to use, presenting complex school performance data, target setting and bench marking information in a visual way which can be easily understood and interpreted by all teachers, governors and school leaders, allowing insightful self-evaluation, and in-depth preparation for Ofsted inspections. Based on FFTs informed and independent national research, FFT Aspire has flexible modules and a variety of reporting options to choose from so you can tailor our data to suit your needs.  And as we always use the latest data available, you’ll always know that you’ve got access to the latest information, whenever you need it.

Reports are available at all Key Stages (KS1 to KS5) and are designed for a wide range of users – including teachers, subject leaders, department heads, senior school leaders, advisers, LAs and Academy sponsors/chains.
