About Us


Examberry began as an 11 plus 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 Media Ltd, also produces 11 Plus Test 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 plus mock papers for other tutoring organisations nationwide, and worked with MENSA and Channel 4’s Child Genius programme.


Examberry runs small friendly classes taking no more than 9 students per class. This allows for a supportive atmosphere in which children thrive and make excellent progress.

If a child cannot make his or her regular session, we can usually arrange  an alternative class subject to availability. If that is not possible then to ensure he or she does not fall behind, we will email or post coursework with explanations and answers for parents to teach and mark the work at home.

Our coursework is written and copyrighted by Examberry Tuition Ltd.
