Explain the Bank of England’s roles and responsibilities with these short films.
These educational videos from the Bank of England Museum use nautical metaphors and animation to explain the Bank’s roles and responsibilities in an accessible, imaginative and entertaining way.
The series is divided into seven short modules, which provide a simple guide to the Bank’s monetary policy and financial stability roles. They explain why low inflation and a safe and stable financial system matter to the UK economy and how the Bank contributes to achieving them.
In this series:
- Prices and the value of your money
- Controlling Spending
- The Financial System
- The Money Go Round
- Keeping Confidence
- How the Bank Works
These educational videos link to Economics. This resource is suitable for students in KS4 & KS5.

Bank of England Museum
The Bank of England’s Museum educates students on the role of the Bank and what it does. Their five galleries travel through the Bank’s history with themed rooms and interactive exhibits.
Students can pick up a gold bar and discover why their building is on top of one the world’s largest stores of gold. They’ll also learn why people started to use paper money and how they make notes difficult to copy. At the heart of the museum is the Stock Office, giving a glimpse of what the inside of the Bank of England would have looked like 200 hundred years ago.
