Coleg Cambria recently hosted a Year 13 Wrexham and Flintshire Seren Event to support the region’s brightest A Level students.

During the event held at Yale Sixth, nearly 60 students from 9 different schools including Castell Alun, Mold Alun, Maelor Penley, Hawarden High, St Richard Gwyn, Flint High, Ysgol Morgan Llwyd, Ysgol Rhiwabon and Coleg Cambria enjoyed a session led by Sandy Mills from Cambridge University.

Seren, a Welsh Government initiative is a network of regional hubs designed to support Wales’ brightest A Level students to achieve their academic potential and gain places at the UK’s leading universities.

All who participated also benefited from great advice on how to hone their applications to Oxbridge, which are due to be submitted in the next couple of weeks.

Angela Woolrich, Assistant Principal & Director of General Education at Coleg Cambria said:

We were delighted to host the Year 13 Seren event at Yale Sixth and to welcome some of our brightest learners to the college. 

“The Wrexham and Flintshire Seren Hub is an active, positive partnership which enables the sharing of the best resources and experience to provide a rich programme of support for our high achievers across the region.
