If you are looking for educational audiobooks for your school, then join Listening Books to gain access to thousands of titles to support the curriculum, reading comprehension and vocabulary.

Audiobooks are a key tool for pupils that struggle to read due to an illness, disability, mental health condition or learning difficulty such as dyslexia. Listening to an audiobook can help students to achieve their literacy objectives, as well as develop a love for books. We stock audiobooks for ages 7 and upwards. We have a wide range of fiction but we also support the National Curriculum from Key Stage 2 – A-Level, stocking set texts, topic work books and study guides.  Popular titles that our schools ask for include To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, An Inspector Calls by J B Priestley, Holes by Louis Sacher and our Keystage 3 Shakespeare collection.

Schools can also choose to opt-in, at no additional cost, to gain access to thousands of newspapers and magazines from all over the world, all of which have a listen function.

As Listening Books is a charity we offer a subsidised membership fee to schools, starting at as little as £50 for the year, with no hidden charges.  Sign up today and instantly access all of our educational titles. You will be able to request an invoice as part of the application process, or alternatively can pay by card or direct debit. 

For those schools having to provide lessons remotely, get in touch with us at to find out how we can support pupils learning at home.

It's Not Rocket Science

It's Not Rocket Science

Author: Ben Miller

Listening Books have proved invaluable in helping some of our students to access the texts they need to study for the English Literature GCSE. Due to their difficulties, some of our students are unable to read, focus on and/or remember texts in their written form. Having the opportunity to offer these students a tablet so that they can listen to the novel or play has meant that they have been able to develop a real knowledge and understanding of the plots, characters and themes. Thank you so much for supporting our students in this way.
