FFT Aspire Data Exchange

Keeping Aspire up to date has never been so easy

Data Exchange is a free service which connects Aspire to your school MIS, allowing you to keep your systems in sync and your pupils up to date.


Instant access to benchmark estimates and historical data as soon as a pupil arrives at your school. Improved support and earlier intervention!


How it works

Data Exchange uses a data connector to link Aspire to your MIS. Just log in to Aspire and choose a connector from one of our two partners – Wonde and Groupcall. Then automatically sync your systems at the press of a button.

Setting up Data Exchange is a quick two-step process and we’ll even detect if your school is already using a data connector.

To get started, simply log in to Aspire, go to the administration menu* and start the Data Exchange setup process.
