It has been revealed that a female teacher accused of having sexual intercourse with a 17-year-old male student was employed at Sydney Grammar School, after her application to have the name of the school suppressed was rejected.

She is alleged to have committed six counts of sexual intercourse with the student. Though the interim suppression order was rejected by Magistrate Jacqueline Milledge, a suppression order was made on the name of the accused, to protect the identity of students.

The woman has not made a plea on the six counts of sexual intercourse with a person under care between 17 to 18 years and one count of indecent assault.

A statement from the headmaster of Sydney Grammar confirmed that aa member of staff had been charged “with serious misconduct of a sexual nature”.

“As soon as the school became aware of the allegations, the employee concerned was suspended and forbidden to have any contact with pupils pending the outcome of the matter,” the statement read. “Parents at the school were written to about the situation, and support has been provided.”

The case has been adjourned until November 8.
