Jim Pickard cites the Sutton Trust’s Elitist Britain 2019 report in the Financial Times.

“Research by the Sutton Trust and the Social Mobility Commission has found that over half of Britain’s senior judges, top civil servants and Foreign Office diplomats were privately educated.

The research, published in June, found that 39 per cent of the cabinet at the time went to fee-paying schools along with 65 per cent of senior judges, 57 per cent of peers, 59 per cent of permanent secretaries and 52 per cent of diplomats.”
