HSBC Online Banking activation

We're currently making improvements to our Online Banking service.

If you registered for Online Banking prior to the 17th December 2014 it's not possible for you to activate your existing Secure Key and you will need to re-start your registration.

If you registered for Online Banking after this date, please log on to Online Banking entering your username, memorable answer and your password, from here you will be prompted to activate your Secure Key.

We apologise for any inconvenience which this delay may cause. Once you are registered, we look forward to introducing you to Online Banking, including the exciting enhancements we're working on now.

What is a SchoolBank?

A SchoolBank is a mini HSBC branch in your school. It's set up and managed by kids, for kids, with support and guidance of local branch employees. HSBC branch employees interview pupils for the different branch roles, train them and then support the running of SchoolBank.

SchoolBank makes financial education fun, whilst also teaching pupils how to manage their own small business.

Work experience

Working at a SchoolBank proves that you're responsible and independent, so it's ideal work experience. You'll also pick up a lot of real-world financial knowledge.

In return you will receive a Certificate & Statement of Achievement for your participation as SchoolBank employees, which will enhance your National Record of Achievement.

Information for teachers and parents

SchoolBank offers a different take on financial education, suitable for 7-11s (Key stage 2).

By running their own bank branch, children learn about:

  • personal finance
  • the responsibilities of cash management
  • how to manage their own project

If you're interested in setting up a SchoolBank, just visit your local HSBC branch. We'll explain the details and see if it can work for your school.
