The Examberry story

Examberry began as an 11+ tuition centre in Ealing, London in 2009.

With a passion for education and consistent success in helping pupils achieve places in their chosen schools, Examberry has expanded rapidly to 5 tuition centres and, as Examberry Papers, also produces 11+ practice papers available online, and at various high street outlets, for use at home and by other educational institutions.

We are proud to have also written entrance exam papers for top London independent schools, 11+ mock papers for other tutoring organisations nationwide, and worked with MENSA and Channel 4’s Child Genius programme.
