an initiation into unschooling with confidence

You care so much about your child and their learning - but it can feel overwhelming to make a change.

Your heart understands that there’s a different way, but you don’t know how to bring that to life.

Perhaps school age is approaching and you have a feeling that mainstream education isn’t right for you… but it’s confusing or scary to consider doing something so different to the norm.

Or perhaps you’ve been home educating a little while and have tried a bunch of stuff –  even MORE structure or even LESS structure- but you are over the nagging, the disconnect, the lack of joy.

It wasn’t meant to be like this?!


What you really need is a chance to re-imagine what your child’s learning could look like...

I’m here to help with that.

Hey! I'm Lucy

Partner, parent, surfing obsessive. Anarchist. Advocate. In no particular order.

I knew early on that I wanted a different path for our family.

And now over the years more than 800 people have taken the DISCO unschooling course, and are experiencing life in a whole new way.

As a mum of two kids who’ve never been to school and a trained Applied Depths Coach, I am here to hold your hand as you ask the big questions about the kind of childhood you want to provide for your kids.

I’m here to help you bring to life the vision that has felt out of reach for your child’s learning.

I'm passionate about...

…creating a life that is delightful and entirely ones own, luxuriating in joy and pleasure, embracing the dark side, and being courageous enough to let life be lived through you.

I’m a dedicated imperfectionist. If you are ready to experiment and play and create and see what happens without fear of getting it wrong, you’ll love this scene.

I’m not for you if… you want to avoid diving deep!

"Understanding the history of the school system really helped me to see the root cause of many biases I held about learning and self worth. It helped me to understand why the school system is just not set up to allow autonomy to thrive. Knowing the background of the system connected the dots for on why so many of us have these wounds. I now view the choice to pull my own kids out of the system as a chance to give them the space to really figure out who they are and what kind of life they ultimately want for themselves."

The DISCO unschooling course can give you a solid foundation for your family

It’s here to set you on the path to a different childhood for your kids, and a better connection between you.

This value-packed course enables you to;

"Disco has provided me with a quiet inner confidence which I can now take with me and further develop. Doing the course on a Sunday has set me up for each coming week and I’ve felt calmer and stronger as a result. So enjoyable."

Who is DISCO for?

You have imagined a different childhood for your kids, right?

One where they feel able to grow into exactly who they are rather than squeezed into a box.

One where their energy and creativity has full expression, where their rights and dignity are upheld…

But you have just a few questions and concerns to work through before saying a full YES to that childhood!


This is for you if…

"DISCO is that reassuring best friend with all the knowledge and self worth ready and waiting to champion you to be your truest self. "
DISCO Participant
"Honestly it’s hard to choose one thing about DISCO, all of it has been life changing. I’ve been stuck in a place I wasn’t happy with in our day to day homeschool journey - feeling really drawn to unschool, already unschooling but feeling guilty. I am so thankful you introduced me to sir Ken Robinson."

What to expect each week?

Week ONE - Tuesday 26th March 8pm London time

In Week One we put you firmly on the map, so you know where you are, where you want to go and how you are going to get there!

We begin to explore any fears and resistance, to clear the way for imagining a different future.

We take a brief historical tour of education and start to understand why we so deeply yearn for something different for our family.


To understand where we are going and why, we have to understand where we are coming from.

We discover how children learn and why traditional schooling is failing our children.

We bed down in our understanding of how unschooling supports learning, and see the unique ways the unschooled child ends up with all the important stuff from a traditional curriculum under their belt.

We address one of the most common fears around self-directed learning – learning to read.

This module is designed to help you feel more confident when responding to concerns from family members about your choices.

In Week Three we take a macro look at the importance of re-imagining childhood and education.

Why are we trying to solve 21st century problems with 19th century education models and curriculum?

What are the kinds of skills children are going to need and how can we facilitate our kids having access to them?

Module three will strengthen your resolve in the power of self directed learning for a better future, and your desire to have a child able to contribute to it.

We look at the practical aspects of self directed learning at home and how people make this work in different circumstances.

What are you going to need and how are you going to access it?

I introduce the “Four C’s” of successful unschooling.

The brilliant Akilah S Richards comes in as guest educator for a segment on unschooling as liberation work and creating equitable spaces.

You lean in to your vision of yourself as an unschooling family and finish with the fuel to achieve it!

This is also our final Q and A.

I want you to know...

Change is possible.


A different way is entirely possible, and there are tens of thousands of parents across the globe that are doing this thing right now.

To be uncertain makes sense. It’s an unknown journey.

And with the echo of generic, monotonous, rote routine schooling that so many of us experienced, we can both know deeply that there is a better way, and be afraid of what the unknown may be.

I created DISCO because I wanted to to show you the possibility of something unique and bespoke-  and give you tools to navigate your fear and concerns.

This way of life gives you the connection to your kids, and their lives, that we thought we would get by ticking all the boxes provided to us.

We can unravel that Sunday feeling of dread, and give our kids a brighter, creative, independent, voracious, future.

One that we all benefit from.

Because when our kids do well, and are travelling through life sharing their experiences with us, we are putting in place a connection that will last a lifetime.

I want that for you, and for them.

I get that approaching a whole new way of life is kind of a big deal. So I want you to be able to do this at your own pace, and come back to it when you need to and it suits you.

"At the start of the course I knew that I wanted to find a different way of doing things for my children, but it was more based on not wanting to send them to school, and I was starting to feel a little run down and questioning my ability to do it all… whereas now I feel so inspired and re-energised, and certain that I actively want to unschool – rather than it being a default – and I have so much great information and inspiration from DISCO to remind me of that."

Everyone should be able to DISCO if they want. So if you’ve been systemically marginalised please email us at for a partially funded place.
