SATs Test Information

Our SATs preparation lessons will help prepare and more importantly, build confidence and understanding in the topics that will be tested in Maths & English.

Our lessons are methodical, in an academic environment that is fun and interactive. Our comprehensive SATs programme fully prepares each child with the essential knowledge and skill to fully undertake the SATs tests.

 

We have been running our SATs programme now for over 3 years with fantastic feedback from both parents and students. Each lesson lasts for 60 minutes and has no more than 4 children per class. We provide all the material that is required for the lesson and for extended homework.

KS2 SATs papers are taken by children during May of Year 6 as part of the National Curriculum assessment programme. Children are between 10 and 11 years of age.

 

These Sats tests are taken after 11+ tests and private school entrance exams.

Level 3-5 papers are taken by all children and level 6 papers are taken by a select few. Calculators may no longer be used in Maths and Science papers are only sat by random schools.

 

Our SATs Boosters use and past papers. Lessons are sometimes supported by online systems; they have been highly effective for preparation.
