The current proportion of state school pupils attending Cambridge University is nearly 68%, the highest number since the 1980s.

The University also states that a quarter of the current student body comes from ‘disadvantaged backgrounds.’ This year, the University reserved 100 places for students classified as ‘deprived’, with the aim of raising the number of students coming from disadvantaged backgrounds to one-third. Dr. Lucy, who supports these measures, is quoted as saying “it is deeply encouraging to see that our actions to provide educational opportunity for all those who have the potential to study here are paying off.” Read more here.
