Montacute, Rebecca; Cullinane, Carl – Sutton Trust, 2021
For the second time in less than a year, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced schools to close for most children, with the majority of children once again learning remotely.

Jerrim, John – Sutton Trust, 2021
A major challenge when contextualising admissions to university, or recruitment for jobs, is access to high quality information on a young person's background, to identify those who should benefit. Granular and verifiable information about prospective students' socio-economic background is, in practice, limited. As a consequence, universities and…

With the majority of children in the United Kingdom (UK) now learning from home as part of another national lockdown, addressing the digital divide is more important than ever.

Montacute, Rebecca; Holt-White, Erica – Sutton Trust, 2021

Montacute, Rebecca; Holt-White, Erica; Gent, Alice – Sutton Trust, 2021
Traditionally, there has been a focus on the academic side of university. But with more young people studying for degrees in an increasingly competitive job market, it is now becoming clear that a degree alone is not enough for young people to succeed in the world of work. Even if two young people go to the same university and achieve the same…

Atherton, Graeme – Sutton Trust, 2021
England has a 'pre-qualification' system of higher education admissions, where applications and offers are made to young people before exam results are received. While in most cases offers are conditional on achieving a grade target in A Level exams, recent years have seen an exponential growth in 'unconditional offers', where the offer of a place…

In the 14 months that have passed since the closure of Britain's schools in March 2020, Britain's education system has faced an extraordinary challenge. The priority now should be to do everything possible to help young people bounce back, and to make sure none are left behind in this process. That is why social mobility and fairness must be put…

Wakeling, Paul; Mateos-González, José Luis – Sutton Trust, 2021
When it comes to social mobility, the goalposts are always moving.

Pascal, Chris; Bertram, Tony; Cole-Albäck, Aline; Holt-White, Erica; Farquharson, Christine – Sutton Trust, 2021
A child's early years play a significant role in determining their chances later on in life, including their chances of social mobility. But the poorest children are already 11 months behind their peers when they start at primary school, with efforts to close the gap stalling, and evidence that the gap has started to widen once again in recent…
