Student Thought: No Stuffy SATs Prep At Spark

When we think of students preparing for exams, most of us think of GCSEs. We even posted about Spark’s GCSE preparation here but they aren’t the only students in an important year. Our Year 6s are in full SATs swing now and enjoying the support that Spark offers in the run up to their exams.

It’s not just in our own after school lessons that we offer SATs support. Over the past two years Spark has been supporting schools with their preparation – you can read all about our successes here.

What do the Year 6s study at Spark?

Like all of our Year groups, the Year 6s follow the national curriculum. For them, this includes the content that they will be tested on in May and exam skills practise. They will be tested on numeracy and numerical reasoning for Maths and spelling, punctuation, grammar and comprehension in English. This is exactly what they spend their time at Spark studying.

What do the Year 6s have to say about Spark?

Rhea told us that she enjoys

learning interesting things

to support her SATs preparation. Mohammed said that at Spark

they go over stuff that school doesn’t […] and adapt lessons to your learning

which goes to show the dedication that the Spark teachers put in to making sure that SATs preparation is relevant to each class and each individual student.

Many of the students commented on how much they enjoyed the lessons each week because of

a variety of activities

SATs related games and because they

enjoy how the teachers teach

Of course, much of the preparation for SATs involves exam-style questions and practise papers, but we’ll thrilled to hear how much our students enjoy our lessons!

Is Spark the best place for SATs prep?

Over half of the students we asked told us that they didn’t look anywhere else for tuition. We thought that was a big compliment! The others told us that they chose Spark over other providers because

it gave me better education


it stood out from the rest

which is always fantastic to hear.

Are there any places left for Year 6?
