11 + and SATS Preparations and Tests

Preparations from Year Group 2 to Year Group 5

Mock test papers for 11+ & SATs

Year 2 and Year 6 SATS Preparations and Tests come SATs 2024

SATs = Standard Assessment Tests


National standard:

This is the level that children are expected to reach in their SATs, which is set at 100 for both KS1 and KS2. So for example if your child scores 100 points, this means that they are working to the expected standard.


SATs are predominantly used as a way for both parents and teachers to learn more about their child’s academic strengths and weaknesses. They give teachers the chance to see how children are doing in comparison to their peers not only within the same school, but also nationally.

KS1 SATs for Year 2 pupils 2024, will mark the end of the mandatory key stage 1 SATs, these will become optional.  And the RBA: Reception Baseline Assessment will be introduced.   Schools will continue to report teacher assessment levels. which can be informed by the school's own assessments or the optional KS1 SATs tests or a combination of both.  If your child's school opts for a SATs, then the formal national assessments will be in Reading and Maths. Your child will also be assessed in writing, speaking, listening and science but these will be assessed by the teacher.

KS2 SATs for Year 6 pupils will take place from Monday 13/05/2024 to Thursday 16/05/2024 in English Reading, GaPS: English Grammar, Punctuation, Spelling and Maths and these are formal national assessments.  These papers are marked externally.  Your child will also be assessed in writing, speaking, listening and science but these will be assessed by the teacher.

For the year 2024, we have a 6 month (21 weeks) programme in place. This will run from November to April and optionally can run throughout the half term breaks and holidays.


@ Britekid SATs, our program is fully aligned to the National Curriculum. We have a structured scheme of work that will cover all the areas required to complete a SATs test. The emphasis is on Spag (spelling, punctuation and grammar) and Maths. Teachers will focus on the knowledge gaps of your child and ensure that they learn how to correct their mistakes by teaching them the appropriate techniques and methods.  Past papers will be used to practice and corrections will be made collectively to emphasize on the methods used.


At the end of the session, pupils will be given homework to complete and every four weeks there will be a class test to check their progress. In addition, there will be opportunities to attend booster courses during holidays.

11 Plus Preparations and Tests


For most grammar schools, the 11+ entrance exams will take place around the first two weeks of September 2024 for September 2025 intake.  This will be in English, Maths, VR and NVR.  Majority of students start the preparations for their 11+ tuition in year group 4.  Some like to start in year group 5 or 6.

11 + is an examination administered to some students in England and Northern Ireland in their last year of primary education, which governs admission to grammar schools and other secondary schools which use academic selection. The name derives from the age group for secondary entry: 11–12 years. 11+ is also known as transfer tests as children progress from primary to secondary. There are four main subjects tested in 11 Plus exams: verbal reasoning, non-verbal reasoning, Maths, and English.

11+: Crucial Year  Our experienced teachers believe that Year Group 5 is a year where all the 11+ students get their final push to succeed. They practice what they have learned in the previous years through various tasks and tests. In addition, they are also subjected to around 9 mock tests. The latter reflect the real transfer 11+ exams.


This does not mean that your child cannot join 11+ if previously not attended. We have designed a special 'summary' class for students who are new to 11+. They will be given a summarised overview of the 4 main areas of 11+ (VR, NVR, Maths and English) with many exercises, tasks and tests.


11+: Good timing  In Year Group 4, the students will start practicing the more challenging VR and NVR questions and focus on English comprehension and Maths problem solving. They will also have around 6 mock tests.


11+: Early start  In Year Group 3, the students are taught the basic principles of 11+. the students will focus on English and Maths and they will understand what the expectations are for the 11+ exams and get introduced to the VR and NVR.
