Can you apply for both 11+ and 13+ entry?

It is not possible to apply to both 11+ and 13+ entry. When you register you need to apply for either 11+ or 13+ as candidates sit entrance exams in Year 6 for both entry points. Unfortunately, in order to manage numbers and class sizes, it is not possible to change the preferred year of entry after the exams have been taken.
