The school bank is run by pupils in conjunction with HSBC.
To open an account you need to be 7 years or older and be able to deposit a minimum of £10 on your first visit. Once your account is open, you can visit whenever you like, it doesn’t have to be every week. Each time you deposit £1 or more, you will receive a raffle ticket. At the age of 11 years, bank customers will be given the option of having a debit card for their account.
The bank is staffed by two teams of year 6 pupils assisted by bank staff. Pupils are invited to apply for various roles each year, including two bank managers, assistant managers, marketing managers, cashiers and record clerks. The children involved are encouraged to think up ideas to promote the bank. This year they have introduced their own employee of the month scheme and a termly competition whereby investors are given a raffle ticket every time they pay into their account with a chance of winning a fabulous ATM style money-box.
Mondays from 3:00pm to 3:30pm
