Bank of England deputy governor raises pupils' interest during school visit

Harris Students took note with great interest when a leading member of the Bank of England visited Harris Academy to speak about his life and career and the bank’s role in the UK economy.


Sir David has been deputy governor for markets and banking at the 325-year-old Bank of England since September 2017, and is a member of the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC).


Pupils were interested to hear about the key responsibilities of the bank, including printing bank notes.


Sir David encouraged students to consider careers within the bank. They then asked questions, ranging from inquiries into the workings of monetary policy to how much he earned and what car he drove!


One student remarked the visit had encouraged them to “push themselves into new experiences or opportunities”.
