For school managers and governors
Our skilled colleagues can help support your free school or academy with guidance on everything from financial training to successful leadership. You can also ask one of them to volunteer to join your board of governors.
For teachers and students
As a teacher, helping your students gain financial literacy is crucial. Our work experience programme can also help students aged 16 or over get a valuable first taste of life after education.
Helping you with your banking
There's a lot to think about when starting a free school or academy and you may need support with your finances. That’s what we do best. New customers will benefit from free day-to-day banking for 2 years plus a host of other benefits.
At Barclays, we’re committed to supporting England’s changing educational landscape and nurturing free schools (including Studio Schools and University Technology Colleges) and academies.
Our key areas of focus are contributing to growth and supporting our communities. Underpinning these is a foundation of sound business principles and practice that ensures integrity in the way we do business.
