We are open!
Our vibrant in-person tuition is back and our Covid-safe environment is ready to welcome new members also. Come and join us!
Explore Learning Birmingham Harborne provides a unique and personalised approach to maths and English tuition. Mapped to the National Curriculum, all work is tailored to every child’s individual strengths and areas of development, which means that tutors are able to support them closely, both to support and to stretch them.
But this is not just maths and English. The team at Birmingham Harborne encourage classroom skills such as asking for help and concentration, and also promote enthusiasm and a love of learning.

Flexible memberships to suit your family
We offer memberships because change doesn’t happen overnight or in a one-off session with a tutor. Consistency is key. Regular sessions with a tutor, planning meetings with managers and access to great independent practise materials all play a part in your child’s learning journey. Learn more.
Let’s discuss your needs during a trial session and identify the best membership option for your family.

Tuition for every stage of your child’s learning
Whatever stage your child is at, we’re here to provide you with maths and English tuition that can really make a difference. Our tailored approach means we can support children of all abilities – whether gifted and talented, looking for a confidence boost or those with special educational needs.
All our tutors are experts in the school curriculum and receive regular training on current teaching methods. Our team love their jobs and this passion creates a vibrant, positive working environment where children can thrive.
Journey to success
We celebrate every child, not based on others, year groups or levels, but based on them. That’s why we’ve managed to support over 175,000 children to become confident learners who are ready to take their next step, whatever that may be.
11 Plus and Entrance Exams
We have developed an 11 Plus and Entrance Exam offering that is tailored to suit the schools in your local area. We want every child to reach their potential and do their very best in school, and our tuition is the best possible support on your child’s journey into grammar school.

- King Edward VI Camp Hill School for Girls
- King Edward VI Camp Hill School for Boys
- King Edward VI Five Ways School
- King Edward VI Handsworth School

Our course is open to all. We don’t pre-test – we welcome any child with the ambition and drive to go to grammar school or independent school. Students on the 11 Plus course attend twice a week and also have access to a fantastic online resource, so they can practise unlimited non-verbal and verbal reasoning exam style questions any time they want.
Tailored flexible session
The key to success at 11 Plus is a strong foundation in core maths and English skills. We use technology that enables us to offer material that is exactly right for your child, and our tutors are on-hand to give individual attention so we can stretch and challenge your child to reach their potential.
Beyond the exam
We don’t believe in simply ‘teaching to a test’ – after all, the test is the very beginning of your child’s journey into their secondary career. To support your child in the run up to, during and once they have made the transition to secondary education, we can continue to support them with the new challenges they face.
How do our current members feel?
The staff are fab!! They really understand what they are doing. My daughter really enjoys her time at the centre. Personally the work staff do is better than your standard school stuff. The level of support to families is wonderful.
You as a centre play a huge part to the children and I feel a great asset to this community.
