The Telegraph’s annual search to find and recognise the county’s top teachers, inspirational leaders and high achievers is under way.

We have teamed up with our sister papers the Chronicle and Echo and the Daventry Express to celebrate the young people, their teachers and young apprentices who do great work without getting the headlines.

We want to hear from readers, teachers, pupils, group leaders and parents or guardians who want to nominate an individual, group or school who they feel deserves an award for their achievements.

If you know someone who fits the bill, we would love to hear from you.

Categories include Unsung Hero, Secondary School of the Year, Inspirational Teacher, Special School or SEN Provision of the Year, Internet Safety, ​Sporting Achievement, Community Award, Inspirational Pupil of the Year, Lifetime Achievement, Learning Through Technology and Primary School of the Year Award.

The awards’ main sponsor this year is the University of Northampton, with categories sponsored by the Qube, Wellingborough School, Textbook Creative, The Staff Room, the EBP, Quantum Print and Regent Street Wrought Iron Works.

If you know someone who inspires others and deserves to be recognised for this, visit the dedicated website and fill out the nomination form before the deadline of Tuesday, June 7.
