To see how well schools are performing and to see how well children individually have learnt.

SATs tests also play a role in defining some of the next educational steps for your child when the results are sent to the child’s secondary school. Children with the highest marks will go into the top sets for Maths and English where they will be with other high-performance children.

What is the purpose of the SATS test?

Many parents seek to help their children through the syllabus or for a longer period as SATS approaches and our preparation courses will help strengthen weak areas, boost confidence and build exam techniques.
