I took DS out in May of yr5. The real drilling for SATs tends to start in January of yr6, so I don't think there's much difference for your possibilities.

Was wondering if the oct of year 6 may be start of preparing for sats but yes may be a bit early. Can't decide between the oct year 5 and year 6 or
Maybe as you say there is not much in it thanks

High school open evenings are September to mid October, deadline for applying is 31/10 in yr 6. If you are in a selective area 11+ is September but I think some London areas have a 2 part test with round 2 in October. Some private schools have entry tests November around here.

But if you really have no option then year 5 is the lesser of two weevils.

Y5 would be the better i.e. least worst option.
The deadline for state secondary school applications is October in Year 6 so this is a busy time as most schools have open days / evenings in late September / early October.

Personally I think year 5 is an important year but would still have to choose this over year 6.
