Schofield Sweeney was delighted to sponsor the Leadership Award at the Telegraph and Argus School Awards 2017.
Gareth Dawkins, principal of Bradford Academy, was named Leadership Award winner at the ceremony, with his two sons accepting the award on his behalf alongside current principal Tehmina Hashmi. Mr Dawkins died unexpectedly last year, his sons, Jonathan and Matthew said: "We're amazed by this. If he were here he would have been really chuffed. This award is going to go in the school. We're so proud."
He was one of 12 winners announced in front of 320 guests at the glittering ceremony held at the Aagrah Midpoint in Thornbury.
Mr Dawkins had led the school since it opened in 2007 and he had also been executive principal of University Academy Keighley.
