Year 3 pupils at Bolton School Boys’ Division enjoyed a particularly ‘Fun Friday’ on the last day of term when they were visited by Lieutenant Commander (Royal Navy) Robert De Maine.

Robert, who himself attended Bolton School from 1995-2002, answered the boys' questions about being a helicopter pilot in the Royal Navy.  He informed the class that he is the Senior Pilot (SP) of 705 Naval Air Squadron, which is one of four Squadrons that operate from RAF Shawbury with a fifth based at RAF Valley and went on to explain how he is a Qualified Helicopter Instructor that helps train other pilots. The boys were excited to hear that Robert will be back at Bolton School in the New Year when he will fly in with colleagues in his helicopter.
