If you are looking for audiobooks for your school, then join Listening Books to gain access to 1,000s 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. They 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.
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.
Borrow books using the OverDrive app or through your internet browser.
Audiobooks on MP3 CD delivered straight to your door.
Borrow books on all formats.
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.
