Financial education

Supporting the savers and borrowers of tomorrow



English, maths, history, music, geography, art, science...all critical topics we’d expect our young people to be learning about throughout their time at school. But what about money?

Education about personal finances is often lacking in the school curriculum, with a lack of time and expertise meaning that learning about savings, mortgages, bank accounts, pensions, debt and more can fall to the bottom of a packed agenda.

We want to change that.

As a mutual society, we exist to improve the communities in which we operate. Aside from being a trusted provider of savings and mortgages, we have a responsibility to support and educate the savers and borrowers of tomorrow, ensuring that they feel confident to make important financial decisions and manage their money when they become adults.

How do we support young people with financial education?

We work with several local schools in and around our branch towns in Berkshire, Hampshire, and Oxfordshire to offer a range of financial education initiatives. These include:

  • Our flagship primary school scheme, Junior Newbury Building Society

  • Virtual and in-person classroom sessions in secondary schools with registered charity, WizeUp Financial Education

  • Guidance and content related to financial education on our website and social media channels.

  • Volunteering at local careers fairs, promoting different careers in the financial services sector.
