If you Google for old Key stage 3 papers, few websites will appear. Free downloads.

Each of the exam boards will have some new-spec GCSE papers accessible on their websites (but not the summer 2019 series yet, as they will still be restricted to registered teachers, so they they can be used as mocks).

OP was looking something for year 9-10. Board papers would be very useful for GCSE preparation.

Foundation level papers?

The problem may be, though, that for current year 10, old KS3 papers may be pitched a little low, then the next step up, in 'real' papers, is GCSE papers, which are syllabus-specific and much of the content won't have been covered.

Something like the CGP books may be more appropriate?

Take a look at the new Oxford Revise revision guides for individual sciences and combined Trilogy. Are for GCSE but broken down by topic. Edited by Primrose Kitten. Focus on embedding knowledge and recall at this stage. No point doing questions if they haven't learnt the facts.

Good suggestion.
