Description

As schools return, many will hope to replicate this year’s A-Level success, with more A and A* grades awarded than ever before. But, some schools are working to overcome poverty, as well as exams.

On the Sky News Daily podcast, Shingi Mararike speaks to Moussin Ismail, Principal of Newham Collegiate Sixth Form, whose students are heading to elite universities despite their deprived surroundings. Plus, the UK’s first Professor of Social Mobility, Lee Elliot Major, talks about why place of birth is still a factor in educational success.
