A teacher who tragically lost her life last summer was one of the big winners at the inaugural Telegraph & Argus School Awards tonight.

Tracey Askham was posthumously named Secondary Teacher of the Year at the award ceremony, which was held to recognise some of the unsung heroes of the district’s schools system.

Mrs Askham, a teacher at Immanuel College, Thackley, died following an accident in a supermarket car park last August and her eldest daughter, Chantelle Aleksander, collected the award on her behalf.

After the ceremony Chantelle said the award was a true testament to how popular her mum was with her pupils and colleagues, who had flooded the T&A with nominations for the much-loved teacher after the categories were announced.

Held at Aagrah Midpoint, the awards were organised by the T&A in partnership with the University of Bradford and Bradford Council.
