I think the RN College at Dartmouth took boys at the age of 18+. Several of my contempories at school went there after completing their A levels. This was in the late 1950's/early 1960's.
I assume that 18 was the best age to go as a couple came from naval families who ought to "have known the ropes".
I was not aware that there was an early cadet entry at age 13.
