What is the student council?

School Council

Bristol Gateway School is passionate about promoting student voice and the Council is a group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils with one overarching aim:


To improve our school!


How were we formed?  We were established in 2013. Every year we will hold school council elections. Each year group will have an opportunity to stand as a candidate for a position on the council. Each year group can have up to 4 elected representatives.

The council elect officers for the following positions:

  • Chair

  • Secretary

  • Treasurer

    What makes us a GOOD council?  We represent the views of all students and get things done!

    Here are some of the reasons which make our council so good:

  • We hold regular meetings

  • Our council is not too big

  • We hold weekly working groups

  • We communicate well between representatives and the rest of the school

  • We have subcommittees who work on specific events or issues

  • We have a small budget

  • We evaluate our progress!


    We do have a voice and our opinions matter. It feels great to be part of something which really works to make change happen!
