Social Mobility - is it achievable?

The latest data releases show that old boys from nine public schools hold 10% of top jobs: Research shows pupils from institutions including Eton and Harrow still dominate public life with alumni from nine fee-paying institutions hold almost 10 per cent of top positions!

Despite the fact the nine schools only educate 0.15 per cent of pupils former students hold and dominate roles such as MPs, peers, judges and senior civil servants.

When schools only support pupils for 13% of the time, and social mobility issues are often longstanding, multi faceted and complex, how can teachers best try to ensure that the most disadvantaged manage to break through?
