Pobble connects and inspires the world's educational community of pupils, teachers and parents and makes writing ridiculously exciting!

Through amazing lesson ideas, a platform to share children's writing and a connected worldwide audience and community,  Pobble boosts imaginations and confidence, giving children personal motivation to write and be creative. 

Used in over 100 countries and endorsed by authors, politicians and school leaders, schools are sharing how Pobble accelerates literacy progress for their pupils. 

Pobble also gives teachers free access to thousands of examples of written work to inspire their lessons and a platform for sharing teaching ideas - the largest online database of handwritten work anywhere in the world!

The Problem

Pobble addresses one of society's most important challenges...


Teachers are tasked to solve this, but they encounter problems every day...



Pobble provides teachers with amazing lesson ideas, the largest bank of children's handwritten work anywhere in the world and a platform for sharing and celebrating children's writing. 


We save teachers time and inspire and connect the educational ecosystem. 


Most importantly, Pobble works! We impact literacy attainment and have connected thousands of young writers, teachers and parents from all over the world!



Pobble was founded by teachers, but we've now added some incredibly talented business and product people to the team from some of the world's most impressive companies.



Fred is 6, dyslexic and hates writing - that was until his teacher discovered Pobble! Inspired by the idea of having his work published on Pobble he put pen to paper and his incredible piece of work was viewed over 4000 times. After winning the Pobble winter writing competition, Fred's Dad commented on Fred's work, saying he was the proudest Dad on planet earth tonight and thanking Pobble for playing our part in giving him back his confident boy. 

Pobble is changing trajectories for children like Fred all over the world. We already work with and impact tens of thousands of children. Vote for us, and help us to impact millions....
