Mission and Manifesto

Helping your pupils become persuasive speakers, critical listeners, analytical thinkers and engaged citizens.

We are a website and training organisation dedicated to promoting and supporting the use of speaking and listening in the classroom.

We help teachers use a range of debate, discussion, dialogue, role play and enquiry as part of the Noisy Learning experience.

A noisy classroom can be both inspirational and rigorous; we love all of the vibrant, active work going on inside it and campaign against the idea that only a silent classroom is an effective one.

All students should leave school as confident and articulate adults and our team of experts is dedicated to fostering those skills.

Our Manifesto

As toddlers, we learn to speak by listening to those around us. Speaking & Listening is essential throughout our education, whether the learning outcome is Reading or Writing, Science or History, a target-led GCSE examination or free-wheeling creative work. The workplaces of tomorrow will be based as much on face-to-face discussions, Skype calls or videos as on traditional reading and writing. So, pencils down and ears open for our Noisy Manifesto …
