About Us

Berkeley Squares is an independent student newspaper written, produced and edited by sixth form volunteers at QEH Bristol.

Since our founding in 2015 we have grown to over 25 dedicated contributors, editors and technical members. Whilst the majority of our audience is Bristol-based, the newspaper deals with regional, national and international issues that aim to voice a healthy spectrum of political and social opinion.

Please feel free to contact us with any queries or feedback.
