The Problem: Educational Inequality in the UK

Parental income is still the strongest indicator of how well a child will achieve at school and how much they will earn in later life.

 

At every stage of their education, a child from a low-income family is less likely to succeed.

They are less likely to pass their GCSEs, secure a university or apprenticeship place and progress to sustained, good quality employment.

Over the course of their lifetimes this achievement gap perpetuates, often leading to cycles of low-paid work with few opportunities for career progression. 

 

It's a cycle we are determined to break.

Educational Inequality: The Facts

  • 2/3 of young people eligible for Free School Meals fail to achieve basic qualifications at GCSE

  • Children from low-income families are half as likely to go to university compared to their wealthier peers. 

  • The chance of a child from a poorer family being out of education, employment or training when they leave school is twice the national average

  • 80% people who were eligible for free school meals as a child are earning less than £26,000 per annum aged 25
