Bringing financial education to local secondary schools


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

According to Financial Capability, only 4 in 10 children and young people say they have had some kind of financial education in school. We want to change that.

We've partnered up with WizeUp Financial Education charity (charity no. 1190032), to deliver virtual and in-person classroom sessions to secondary schools throughout our branch communities. 

How does it work?

WizeUp aim to deliver tailored financial education sessions to schools and colleges, through interactive virtual and in-person workshops.

The workshops empower young people to understand and manage their finances as they grow, as well as making financial education simple for teachers and schools.

Here's some of the topics schools can choose to put on the workshop agenda:

  • Budgeting

  • Credit cards

  • CV writing

  • Income and National Insurance

  • Inflation

  • Saving and investing

  • The history of money.

Schools we've delivered workshops at:

If you're a teacher, student, or parent, and you're interested in getting a financial education session in your school, please email us a marketing@newbury.co.uk to find out more. 

As teachers it is sometimes difficult to talk with confidence about current financial issues. Having someone with such extensive knowledge and confident delivery is great.
