School Bank Account

Our School Bank Account has been developed specifically for state-funded schools, academies and those schools on their way to becoming academies.

You’ll get free day-to-day banking, interest paid monthly and a relationship manager available to advise you via telephone or email.

We’re the approved banking partner of the Institute of School Business Leadership (ISBL). We understand the challenges schools face and are in an excellent position to help you make the most of your resources.
