Two Red Arrows pilots were invited to an awards ceremony at Sir William Robertson Academy in Welbourn.

The pilots were special guests at the school’s Post 16 Awards ceremony this month, the last of its three Awards’ ceremonies to celebrate the achievements and success of the students over the past academic year.

Flight Lieutenants Olly Parr (Red 8) and Joe Hourston (Red 9) presented the GCSE awards and shared their journey of how they became pilots with the Red Arrows with over 200 guests.

Headteacher Mark Guest said: “It was a privilege to welcome Flight Lieutenants Olly Parr and Joe Hourston from The Red Arrows. Their presentation and address to students and their families was captivating and most entertaining, charting their progression from school, university, officer training to becoming pilots. We were delighted that they were able to stay and chat with our students and their families afterwards. It was a memorable occasion shared with our current Sixth Formers and former students.”
