The father of a schoolboy who had sex with his teacher in a plane toilet has said his son never wanted her to lose her job.

Eleanor Wilson, 28, was banned from the profession last week after she engaged in sexual activity with the pupil while returning home from a school trip to Swaziland.

The 16-year-old’s dad told the Daily Mail that the affair, which went on months, was only exposed when another pupil blackmailed Ms Wilson and told the headteacher.

The father, who cannot be identified, said: “What I will say is he [the boy] didn’t want any of this.

“He didn’t want her to lose her job over it. The relationship was only uncovered when another pupil found out about it and blackmailed her for sex.

“He then told the school and from there it was the school who pursued the investigation, not my son.

“He didn’t want her to lose her career. He’s a young man who just wants to put this behind him and move on.”

The newspaper previously reported that the pupil, now 18, told school friends that he drank cheap whisky with the teacher and had sex “a lot” on the two-week trip.

A friend said: “He enjoyed telling me all about his time in Swaziland as you could go to a store and buy whisky for next to nothing.

“He said they had sex a lot on the trip to Africa and on the flight back.”    

Despite rumours about the pair at the school in Bristol the relationship continued for several months after they got home.

Miss Wilson left the school in May 2016 and was banned from the profession following a two-day hearing earlier this week.

She 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 who found she had also tried to cover up the relationship.
