KS2 SATs English Papers

Below is a full collection of Year 6 SATs papers. Answers, instructions and mark schemes all included!

The first set of papers below (2022 – 2016) are all new style SATs papers. In 2016, the Standards and Testing Agency (STA) created new SATs papers to follow the introduction of the new national curriculum in 2014. Furthermore, raw marks and levels were replaced by the new system of ‘scaled scores’. These can be found below next to their respective years. More in-depth explanations can be found within the documents.

Old style SATs papers (pre- 2016) were written for the earlier national curriculum. Due to the content tested being slightly different, you should be careful if using them for revision. However, much of it is applicable to the new style of paper and so is still a useful resource should you complete all the later papers!  

The table below contains the old style SATs papers from 2013 – 2015. The topics covered may vary slightly from current papers although they are still a useful resource as the skills tested are very similar.
