Speaking after the verdict at Leeds Crown Court, Senior Investigating Officer Detective Superintendent Jon Morgan, said: “This was a complex inquiry which involved a thorough investigation of all aspects of the school’s governance and its finances over a number of years.

“Raza, Hussain and Khan were in positions of trust, stealing thousands of pounds of public money which was intended for the development of a newly formed academy.

“They acted selfishly and dishonestly in obtaining these funds and I would like to thank everyone who has helped uncover their unscrupulous activities and brought them to justice.”
