The structure of SATs papers has changed over time but past SATs papers remain helpful. In 2016, the DfE reviewed every SATs paper for the new national curriculum assessment. We now have three sets of SATs past papers (2016, 2017 and 2018) that cover these changes. These free SATs papers will help your child prepare for the 2018 tests.

Children should avoid practising their SATs online and using SATs papers online. Remember, SATs papers are "written" tests taken under formal exam conditions. Our SATs tests may be old SATs papers but there is no substitute for printed exams!

If using SATs online, children avoid practising their handwriting. Completing SATs papers online also doesn't let children leave their maths "working". Both of these are critical test skills for children to learn as they progress through school. It's also easy for children to become distracted if practising SATs papers online!

Using our website you can download as many free exam papers as you wish. We provide our SATs tests online as Adobe PDFs so you can print them at home.

Past SATs papers are best given to children in the months before their real SATs tests. This way they can practise answering SATs-style questions in a timed environment. Once they have completed a past SATs paper, check through their answers. This will help you and your child identify weaknesses before their SATs.

Don't confuse SATs papers (a SATs UK national assessment) with SAT papers. Young adults take SAT papers in the USA to measure their critical thinking. These "S.A.Ts" (as they are often pronounced in films) are a completely different test paper. We do not provide any SAT practice papers or past SAT papers.

For parents of children about to take their SATs, we have written a helpful SATs Revision Guide. Use it, together with our free exam papers, to help your child prepare for their SATs.

Remember, all our online SATs papers are completely free, forever. There is no limit to how many SATs practice papers you can download. We encourage you to download as many free SATs papers as you need. We also provide free papers for the 11+ and Year 1 Phonics Screening Test.
