The brother of a female physics teacher who had sex with her student in the toilets of Plane when the two schools were returning from the trip has told MailOnline that his sister was set up.
Her brother, Jethro Wilson, 26, said his sister Eleanor, 28, denied joining the ‘mile high club’ with a sixth-former on the way back from a school trip to the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva 2015.
The teacher has been banned from the classroom and is still under police investigation. Her brother said that she is now in the Royal Navy and is currently backpacking on Dartmoor as part of her training.
She stays in a live-in relationship with her boyfriend and she is serving alongside him, said the brother.
A spokesman for The Royal Navy said: ‘It would be inappropriate to comment.’
Jethro also told MailOnline that his sister was not sacked from her job, adding: ‘She left because of all the hassle she was getting from the younger students.
‘She mutually left the school but nothing sexually happened with the student and for it to come out that it was on the plane was a bit bizarre really.
Eleanor Wilson is a Royal Navy reservist (picture) and is ‘getting on with her life’, her brother says, and she maintains she did not have sex with a pupil in a plane toilet.
‘The police have dealt with it and haven’t prosecuted her because she hasn’t done anything wrong. Nothing happened on the plane or anywhere else.’
The female teacher had sex with a pupil on a flight home from a school trip. Miss Wilson was intoxicated and he had consumed approximately five miniature bottles of wine on the flight.
Miss Wilson, from Keighley, West Yorkshire, during the flight home from the trip they flirted at the back of the plane while looking after another pupil who was unwell.
Miss Wilson entered the toilet, kissed, engaged in a sex act and had intercourse without using protection.
Giving evidence to a professional conduct panel, the sixth-former, known as Pupil A, said both of them were drunk on the flight in the summer of 2015.
But Jethro Wilson denies this, saying: ‘When she [Miss Wilson] went on this trip the drinking wasn’t on the plane, she had just had a drink with some of the students older than 18 in a bar in Switzerland.
He added: ‘She worked so hard to be a teacher and it’s a shame because she doesn’t want to do it because of what’s happened.
‘She had a drink in Switzerland and allowed students over 18 to have a drink, that was all and now it’s this big.

‘A student can easily say one thing that has ruined a teacher’s career. She has worked seven years for it and to suddenly out of the blue stop because of lads pestering her because she is a young teacher.
‘It’s a real shame, they need more good teachers like her, she was the smartest teacher in her school.
‘She had a boyfriend at the time who she was happy with. She has no reason to blow her career like that.’
Both of them continued their relationship, texting and meeting up for drinks despite gossip at the school in Bristol.
The head teacher heard the rumors of their relationship in September 2015 and quizzed Miss Wilson about them.
When she was asked she denied any improper behaviour and no further action was taken.
Seven months later, the relationship came to light after another pupil threatened to reveal the tryst unless Miss Wilson had sex with him.

The guy even sent a series of emails in March 2016, to the teacher in which he mentioned that he knew about her relationship with Pupil A and would inform the school.
All the emails were reported to the school and the police.
Against the teacher the school launched an investigation and was dismissed in May 2016.
Earlier this month, she appeared before the professional conduct panel.
At the hearing, the National College for Teaching and Leadership disciplinary panel found that Pupil A to be a credible, reliable witness and agreed with his version of events.

She was not present but the panel heard she had previously denied the pair kissed or had sex, and claimed they simply ‘hugged on occasion’.
During the school investigation she admitted that the pair had met and exchanged text messages but denied that they had drunk any alcohol, even though Pupil A had shown his teachers a receipt for ciders.
But following the two-day hearing, she was found guilty of all but two of the allegations against her.
Polly O’Malley, chairman of the professional conduct panel, said: ‘There was evidence that the teacher’s actions were deliberate and continued for a significant length of time despite her understanding that her behaviour was inappropriate.
‘There was no evidence to suggest that the teacher was acting under duress.’

Striking Miss Wilson off from the profession, she added: ‘These behaviours include serious dishonesty and serious sexual misconduct.
After hearing everything the panel found that Miss Wilson engaged in sexual activity with Pupil A on one occasion, including oral sex and sexual intercourse.
‘Additionally the panel has found that Miss Wilson encouraged Pupil A to hide their relationship and lied about it herself when an investigation into the allegations was undertaken by the school.’
To protect the identity the name of the school and the name and age of Pupil A were not revealed.
Miss Wilson was reported to the police, however it was not known last night whether officers had taken any action against her.
An Avon and Somerset spokesman said she voluntarily attended a police station for interview in 2016 and ‘enquiries are ongoing’.
