Kids rock at Metro Bank

Kids are always welcome at Metro Bank. They'll love coming in store to use our Magic Money Machines. Plus, they can open accounts for young people. And we help kids in schools too, providing financial education for the next generation with our Money Zone programme.

Money Zone

Our financial education programme teaches school kids how money, banking and personal finance works.

Accounts for young people

Start saving early with our Young Savers account. And the Cash Account provides great everyday banking for under 18s.

Magic Money 5 for 5 Club

We've made the difficult decision to remove our Magic Money Machines and to retire the Magic Money 5 for 5 club. From 26 July, the £5 bonus will no longer be paid to those making 5 monthly deposits into a Young Saver account. Our Magic Money Machines will no longer be available to use for deposits in stores

Meet the world of money

Metro Bank Money Zone introduces Key Stage 2 and 3 (Years 4 to 8) pupils to financial skills, helping them understand how money, saving and banking work. Our sessions are ideal for incorporating into your school’s PSHE curriculum, and are linked to the wider government curriculum guidelines.

Our programme

We teach the Money Zone Key Stage 2 and 3 programmes over 4 sessions:

  • our trained bank colleague will come to your classroom to teach the first 3 sessions
  • the fourth session takes place at a Metro Bank store. Pupils meet real Metro Bank cashiers, dare to step inside a vault, experience our Magic Money Machine and more!
  • after they’ve finished the programme, each pupil gets a certificate and a goodie bag.

Exciting activities

Fun lesson plans, teachers notes, learner workbooks and activities for all abilities are part of the programme. These include learning about different types of banking accounts and basic tips on managing money. You can do all the activities during the sessions or keep some back for later extension work.
