Back to School

Agencies: Engine Sidhu & Simon


The latest instalment of the ‘Bank of Antandec’ campaign sees Ant and Dec return to role as fictional banking CEOs. This time, they’re attempting to teach children money confidence – however they’ve not quite got it right. In contrast to the Bank of Antandec’s endeavours, Santander has teamed up with Twinkl – one of the world’s largest online educational platforms – to launch free, curriculum-friendly learning materials, highlighting their commitment to supporting financial education, both at home and in the classroom.

Breaking on 23rd June, ‘Back to School’, the 60-second commercial at the heart of the campaign, shows the banking supremos bursting into a classroom to impart their questionable financial wisdom, only to find that Santander - with the help of Twinkl - have got their first with The Numbers Game.

This professional campaign titled 'Back to School' was published in United Kingdom in June, 2022. It was created for the brand: Santander, by ad agencies: Engine and Sidhu & Simon. This Film medium campaign is related to the Finance industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted almost 2 years ago.
