High school teacher charged over allegedly having sex with teenage student

A teacher is due to front court charged over an alleged sexual relationship with a student at a high school in Sydney's east.

The 34-year-old man was arrested on July 19 after detectives from the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad were alerted last month to a sexual relationship between a male teacher and a female student.

Police will allege in court the man engaged in sexual acts with the teenager, then aged 17, at homes in Randwick and the Central Coast between April and October 2018.

He was granted strict conditional bail to appear at Downing Centre Local Court on Monday.
