Will changing my bank account affect my credit score?

I have been with Natwest ever since I was 11, so that’s now 6 years. I am planning to change to Halifax when I am 18 though because they offer the best student account.

I have been told that changing banks affects your credit score, which is why they ask you when you are applying for a loan, mortgage etc for how long you’ve been with your current bank for.

Is there any truth behind this? Or should I just change?
