There are two major points of entry to Latymer Upper School, at 11+ and 16+. There is a limited intake at 13+.
Admission to Latymer Upper School at 11+ (Year 7) is through competitive exams and interview for those pupils who do well in the exams. All pupils who are registered prior to the deadline will be invited to sit the written examination which covers English and Maths. Registrations for 11+ entry in 2014 close on Monday 18th November. The Entrance Exam will be held on Tuesday 14th January 2014, at Latymer. The interviews are usually scheduled for a Saturday in early February. Interviews cover questions in Maths and English along with those of a more general nature. Offer letters are sent out in mid-February and families have approximately two weeks to accept or refuse Latymer's offer of admission. Those who accept the offer will be asked to confirm that they have not accepted an offer from another school and to return a non-refundable £1,000 confirmation deposit.

There are a small number of places available for entry to Latymer Upper School at 13+. Enquiries should be made to the Admissions office in the first instance. Candidates are considered in the year preceding entry. A candidate seeking entry at 13+ should submit a current school reference and report. Entry to the exam will be dependent upon reference, report and discussion with the candidate's current Head. Entry is via competitive exams in the Spring term of the year of entry. Successful candidates will be invited to interview and results will be known before the Easter holidays. Means tested Scholarships are not normally available at 13+. Music scholarships are available for entrants at 13+. As a rough guide, candidates should be at Grade 6 on their main instrument.
