About KS3 SATs Papers

KS3 SATs papers were introduced in 2003.

KS3 test papers challenged children in their Year 9 Maths, Science and English.

Following a long battle with teachers, formal tests were dropped after 2009. KS3 Maths papers (together with English and Science) do still exist but they are written and marked within schools.

KS3 SATs papers remain useful to children. Giving your child KS3 past papers before their tests is the best way to prepare them. 

Whilst there haven't been any published since 2009, Year 9 SATs remain valuable to children in Year 9. Especially for the KS3 SATs papers in Maths.

Since 2011 we have offered free KS3 SATs papers to millions of parents and teachers. Other websites (like emaths ks3, emaths ks3 maths and satspapers org ks3) have tried and failed to compete. Thank you for your support!  

It might be more convenient for you to access all our KS3 Science SATs Papers, Key Stage 3 Maths Papers or KS3 English SATs Papers via their dedicated pages.

If your child is coming up to their SATs, why not look at our detailed guide to SATs Revision.
