该调查由Sutton Trust 教育慈善机构完成。报告显示，私立学校的毕业生几乎在所有关键岗位占据绝大多数，并且更有希望登上更高的位置。
军队将领 71% 高级将领
议员及内阁 32% ~50%
报告还指出，约三分之一（32%）的议员曾接受私立教育，而保守党内阁中则有一半的成员毕业于私立学校。连工党领袖Jeremy Corbyn的影子内阁里也有13%的成员出自私立学校。(背景介绍： 工党理论上是是英国平民阶层代表）
Sutton Trust的主席Peter Lampl爵士说：“我们的调查报告显示，如果你曾在私立学校念书，那么你在英国的许多行业中更有机会攀上高位。拿学业来说，私立学校的学生更容易培养出自信、雄辩、团队配合等能力，这些能力对事业成功极为重要。”
Privately educated people dominate top British jobs, damning report finds
The stranglehold former public-school pupils have on the UK’s top jobs has laid bare in a hard-hitting report out today.
The study, by the Sutton Trust education charity, shows that virtually every key profession is dominated by privately educated pupils snaffling the senior jobs.
Their grip on power is most noticeable in the judiciary, where 74 per cent of leading judges (those in the High Court or Court of Appeal) were privately educated.
As a result of the research, an All-Party Parliamentary Group is to set up an inquiry into how to improve access for people from disadvantaged backgrounds to senior jobs.
The charity, which campaigns for equal access to education for all, demands tougher action be taken to help more bright state-school pupils to access leading positions in the professions.
Figures in the report also show that one in three MPs (32 per cent) was privately educated – as were half the members of the Conservative Cabinet. Even in Jeremy Corbyn’s Shadow Cabinet, 13 per cent of members went to private school. Nationally, the figure is just 7 per cent.
Today’s report, carried out by Dr Philip Kirby, goes on to show that 71 per cent of senior Army officers – two-star generals and above – went to private schools. Only 12 per cent attended comprehensives.
In medicine, 61 per cent of doctors were privately educated while 22 per cent went to selective state grammar schools and just 16 per cent to comprehensives. The list goes on – 48 per cent of civil servants were educated privately, 29 per cent went to selective grammar schools and 23 per cent to comprehensives.
The higher echelons of journalism are also dominated by the private sector, with 51 per cent educated in independent schools. And of those chief executives of FTSE 100 companies who were educated in the UK, 34 per cent were privately educated.
Nearly half the top actors – 42 per cent of Bafta Award winners – went to private schools, fuelling criticism made in the past month that the profession is becoming more elitist.
“Our research shows that your chances of reaching the top in so many areas of British life are so much better if you went to an independent school,” said Sir Peter Lampl, the chairman of the Sutton Trust. “As well as academic achievement, an independent education tends to develop the essential skills such as confidence, articulacy and teamwork, which are vital to career success.
“The key to improving social mobility at the top is to open all independent schools to all pupils based on merit, not money – as well as highly able students in state schools.”
