Key Stage 2 SATs

National curriculum assessments: past papers 

At the end of year 6, pupils sit tests in English Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling (GPS); English Reading and Maths. These statutory tests are known as Key Stage 2 SATs (KS2 SATs). These tests are prepared and written by the Standards and Testing Agency (STA) and are externally marked by trained markers. Schools receive pupils’ tests results in July and then share them with parents and secondary schools. In 2016, the KS2 SATs were redesigned.
Below are past test papers for the Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 national curriculum tests.
