2019-2020 admissions statistics released
Statistics from Mansfield's most recent admission's cycle have been released. As usual, a high proportion of Mansfield’s UK intake were from state schools (90.6%). Notably, 90.09% of these schools are non-selective.
Commenting on these figures, Principal Helen Mountfield acknowledged Mansfield's long history of championing Oxford access, motivated by a commitment to excellence:
“As a result of quiet determination and commitment, Mansfield has been a beacon of access and outreach work for more than 20 years. Our state intake has been more than 80% for ten years and more than 90% since 2016.
This year more than 90% of Mansfield state-sector intake is from non-selective schools. In recent years, our students’ performance has also risen consistently. It shows (as we have always known) that cognitive and social diversity do not threaten academic excellence, they enrich it.”
Lord Andrew Adonis, politicians and former Minister for Education commented on Mansfield’s Access & Outreach Work on Twitter :
“Mansfield College Oxford, and what it has done to boost state school participation at Oxford, is worth a lot of study & hugely significant for education policy in England”
