    You can compare the interests of various savings accounts online at a site like this.
    www.moneysupermarket.com/savings/childrens/

    Don't know what age they consider you not a child (18? but prob 16). There are various accounts which require notice periods to withdraw money, need regular deposits etc. so you might want to consider how you want to save as you may get a better rate. I'd watch out as some banks are offering 'bonus' rates (e.g. an extra 2%) that stops after so many months.
