In the UK you can open a special under 18s current account, it won't have an overdraft or anything but it will have a debit card which you can use for shopping and at an ATM. Generally you will need to have photo Id like a passport or provisional license, and proof of your address - do you have anything from the inland revenue like a letter about your national insurance number? I would go online to whatever bank it is you want to open an account at and they will have a link telling you what Id you will need. You might even be able to open the account online and then call into the branch with your identification.
