Website The 93% Club via Trustee Unlimited

We are the 93% of people who went to state schools in the UK. Despite our number, we occupy a much smaller percentage of top roles: 34% of FTSE 350 CEOs, 35% of senior judges, 43% of the House of Lords, 56% of journalists, and so the list goes on… That’s why we’re building a members’ club to rival some of the most exclusive and expensive clubs in the UK. We’re taking a centuries-old system and repurposing it to change society and tackle social immobility head on.

We exist to dismantle the class inequality that exists in Britain today through the power of community. By bringing together thousands of like-minded individuals across the country, we are breaking down the structural barriers to social mobility and building a future that’s fairer for the next generation. We are driven by our goal of solving the UK’s social mobility problem, once and for all. Whilst that might sound ambitious, it guides us in everything we do and steers the way in which we operate as a truly mission-driven organisation.
