Welcome to the Noisy Classroom, now in our 8th year supporting the use of speaking and listening in the classroom. Our aim is to help teachers use a range of debate, discussion, dialogue, role play and enquiry as part of the Noisy Learning experience.

Our unique oracy programme for state secondaries in England, run with the PiXL schools group, is now into its third year.

A richly-resourced scheme of work introduces debate at KS3, and our ‘Debating Across the Curriculum’ book gives a wealth of ideas for all subjects and age groups. Co-curricular aspects include help setting up clubs in school, and our national Up for Debate competition; the 2018 regional rounds are taking place in Bristol, Harrow, Manchester, York, Roehampton and Northampton in March and April.
