Mock SATs

14 Feb 2019

In Year 6, as well as preparing pupils for the national tests (SATs), we help them to be 'secondary school ready' by the end of the year.

This means that when they leave Handsworth, they will have the tools and knowledge to help them transition to Year 7, regardless of the school they move to.

Mock SATs and SATs

Some parents have requested information on how they can help their children prepare for the SATs, so we have put together some information below to help you.


The Mock SATS take place from Monday 25th - Thursday 28th February.

We have produced a guide to the Mock SATS to help your child know what to expect.
