    I'm inquiring as to whether a non-native student would be eligible to sit an exam before the age of sixteen. I'm currently in Year Nine in secondary school, and am performing well above the national average - in fact, I have completed several GCSE papers in all sectors of the language assessment (Listening, Reading, Writing, Speaking) and have gained marks close to 100%.
    I'm conscious of the fact that my teachers consider me able to perform at a higher level, but I am in the dark as to whether it is legally acceptable for a non-native student to take an early language exam (from a public school).

    Any advice?

    Yes, it's completely legally acceptable. Chat with your teachers about it, they may be willing to enter you for the exam series this year.
