Closing gaps early

Extra Time

September 7, 2017 John Jerrim

What We Do

The Sutton Trust has produced and commissioned over 200 pieces of research on policy and practice across the broad and complex area of social mobility – from the early years through to university access – reflecting the varied obstacles facing young people from non-privileged backgrounds.

Our research has produced some astonishing statistics which reveal the current state of low social mobility in the UK and the disproportionate representation of the most affluent independent school students in top universities and professions.

In this way, our research informs government, educational practitioners and policy-makers, helping to shape education and employment policy and practice.
