Students and staff at William Ransom Primary School have had a busy summer starting with their High Flying Day after frequent flier Robin Evans visited.

He was joined by a drone called CineCloud, who drew eyes to the sky by flying high overhead, capturing a bird’s eye view of the school – while explaining to students how the unmanned aerial vehicles work and what they can be used for.

Head teacher Mary Driver told the Comet: “The great thing was Robin knew another pilot who was a former pupil at William Ransom and he always wanted to fly, so he had a photo of his friend aged five in his William Ransom uniform and one of him in his Easyjet uniform!

“It was brilliant because he’s working in his dream job and we could show the children if you work hard, the sky is the limit and you can get where you want to. It was really inspiring for the children.”
