Sophie Christophy is a self-directed scholar, investigating the relationships between and impact of the history of childhood, education and parenthood, and our current social norms, systems and behaviour. She approaches her studies with a feminist and social justice orientated lens, with a view to discover effective ways to identify and deconstruct the oppression of children.

You can find documentation of her ongoing academic work – an Unschooled Master of Arts in Children’s Rights, Parenthood and Education – here.

Her writing on themes of children’s rights, feminism, parenting and consent based education can be found in this blog, on the Huffington Post and Attachment Parenting UK.

Sophie lives in England and is unschooling with her family. She is interested in the architecture of new models of consent based education both within and outside of the family.

She loves to connect with other people who are working on, or interested in these themes, and can be found on Twitter: @schristophy, Facebook: Sophie Christophy, and by email: sophiechristophy@gmail.com

  1. Hi Sophie
    I’ve worked in re-engagement at the edges of further education for the last 8 years and recently left my job running a campus of a small college to start a research, consultation and programme design/delivery education company called YouVersity.
    I’ve also just started a Doctor of Education research programme at the University of Brighton. My research is in the area of what learning possibilities exist outside of the conventional routes and how do we begin to better map and navigate them. I’m currently linking with a range of home-ed, unschooling networks and would very much like to find time to talk.
    Looking forward to connecting
    Leo

  3. Hi Sophie. : )

    Just listened to your interview on Pam Laricchia’s podcast and will be following your UMA with great interest. I’m a mum of 2 unschooled boys and am new to the UK. We used to live in NZ and ran in the same circles as Lucy AtikenRead. It’s a small world. : )

    Thanks for all you do,
    ~Danielle

    • Hi Danielle – great to hear from you! Where abouts in the UK are you based now? It is a small world indeed, I am always so pleased to connect with other parents/families on this journey.

  4. Sophie, this is so spot on. It mirrors a set of thought processes I run through literally every day in order to get on with raising my pile of small kids with a modicum of dignity and resolve. Thanks so much for speaking this truth.
