Lampl, Peter

Sutton Trust

Chairman and Founder

Peter Lampl established and leads the well-known organisation fighting for “social mobility from birth to the workplace so that every young person….has the chance to succeed in life.” Founded in 1977, The Sutton Trust has published over 200 reports, with many of their findings going on to directly influence policy and politics. For example, in May 2020, former shadow education secretary Rebecca Long-Bailey responded to the Sutton Trust’s report on the impact of COVID and school closures, stating: “This study confirms our concerns that school closures without adequate support to parents and families will only widen inequality between children further”.
