THIS is the teacher barred from the classroom after having sex with a pupil in an airplane toilet after a school trip.
Physics teacher Eleanor Wilson, 28, has been banned from teaching indefinitely after her encounter with the boy on the way back from a visit to the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva.
She was a ‘highly regarded’ teacher at a Bristol school when she engaged in oral sex with the pupil in the toilet cubicle and then had unprotected sex with him, a disciplinary panel found.
It came to light seven months later when another student threatened to tell the school unless she had sex with him. His emails were reported to the school and police.
Miss Wilson was found guilty of unacceptable professional conduct and conduct that may bring the profession into disrepute by a National College for Teaching and Leadership panel.
It also said she had tried to cover up the relationship, which continued after the school trip.
Her tryst with the sixth-former, known as Pupil A, took place on a flight in July 2015. ‘Pupil A gave evidence that Miss Wilson was intoxicated and that he had himself drunk approximately five miniature bottles of wine,’ the panel said.
The boy claimed they ‘entered the toilet, kissed and had oral sex and intercourse without using protection’. The panel said Pupil A was ‘a credible, reliable witness’. Miss Wilson, who is originally from Keighley, West Yorkshire, had denied having sex.
Yesterday her brother told MailOnline she was set up. Jethro Wilson, 26, said: ‘She denied having sex with him. She also said she hadn’t been drinking on the plane. Eleanor has a new boyfriend and is on Dartmoor training with the Royal Navy Reservists.’
Police said ‘inquiries are ongoing’. The school said: ‘We unreservedly condemn Ms Wilson’s actions. Her conduct represents a shocking abuse of her position of trust.’
