Our commitment to your school
At CommBank we’ve been supporting Australia’s schools for nearly a century and along the way we’ve developed a deep appreciation for the things that are important to you as a school principal or administrator.
We understand that for a school to perform to its full potential, financial viability and sustainability are paramount. And we know that just as every student is different, every school is different.
From on-the-ground bankers who live and breathe their communities and specialist corporate banking experts fully focused on servicing our schools customers, to transactional banking specialists who have in-depth knowledge of cash flow and transactional banking, you’re in good hands.
Specialist school bankers
At Commonwealth Bank we make it a priority to really know our school customers well, so we can bring you the best banking solutions to help your school achieve its full potential.
Our specialist School Bankers accreditation program includes ongoing education and guidance from experts in the schools sector. We understand not only your day-to-day banking needs but your longer term plans within the broader educational landscape.
Our banking solutions are designed to deliver maximum benefit to your school and enable you to continue to inspire and nurture generations of Australian children.
The most important innovations meet a real need and technology is a crucial tool to bring better banking to schools. That’s why, together with MasterCard, we developed Qkr!
It’s a mobile app that let’s busy parents and carers pay school fees, buy uniforms and order school lunches on their mobile phone.Learn more about Qkr!
