    So, I recently got my grades back and I got AABB. The As in Maths and Physics and the Bs in Further Maths and History.

    My modules for maths and their scores as follows (MEI exam board): C1 - 100, C2 - 96 and S1 - 67.
    For further maths: FP1 - 78, M1 - 83, D1-60 (It was really hard).

    So, my school is in the bottom third of state schools in the country.

    Will some of my poor scores significantly affect my chance of getting an offer from Oxford?

    GCSEs are more important, and if I'm honest most of the people I see on this site who get offers from Oxford get AS results like yours but it doesn't matter because they have like 10 A*'s at GCSE, and that's what Oxford cares about.
