The Seren Network

The Seren Network is a Welsh Government initiative to support the brightest students in Wales to gain entry into leading Universities in the UK and overseas. 

The Seren programme works in close partnership with state schools, local authorities, universities, colleges, third sector organisations and alumni. 


There are 12 regional Seren Hubs across Wales, led by Seren Co-ordinators. These ensure that the Seren programme is offered locally to the brightest students from years 8 to 13. 


The Vale Hub is led by a Seren Co-ordinator. They collaborate with partner organisations, MAT leads and Sixth Form School leads to ensure that opportunities from universities are promoted to students.


A weekly newsletter is distributed to schools providing information on activities such as digital masterclasses, test preps, seminars, open days and talks. National Seren events are also promoted, as well as a local programme for years 12 and 13.
