Social Mobility Support

Our motto ‘Aspire, Achieve, Enjoy’ is the cornerstone of Southmoor’s commitment to social mobility. It’s about recognising that children in the North East deserve the best and that our job is to provide it!


Southmoor has seen a significant increase in the achievement of its pupils and in particular it is joyous to witness the huge increase in our young people gaining places at top universities. All from a sixth form that ranks as one of the best in the country!
It may therefore come as little surprise that our work has gained national recognition.  We are proud to announce that Sammy Wright has been appointed as a Social Mobility Commissioner.  A position approved by the Prime Minister!  As it only involves one day per month though it will not take Sammy away from Southmoor very often.  Please see the attached article for more details.
