A ”hard-hitting” annual report is set to condemn Oxford and Cambridge for their failure to increase intake from state schools, the Guardian has reported.
The Social Mobility and Child Poverty Commission report, to be released on Thursday, is expected to ”name and shame’’ individual colleges, with Robinson listed as a particularly poor performer.
Despite an increase of 6% in the proportion of state-educated students between 2003-04 and 2013-14, the failure of Oxbridge colleges to increase the number of state educated pupils in colleges is to be strongly criticised by the report.
