Teacher found dead at prestigious Sydney school

The body of a woman in her 20s has been found on campus grounds this morning at St Andrew’s Cathedral School in Sydney’s CBD.

The woman, believed to be a staff member at the prestigious Anglican school, is yet to be formally identified after she was found dead in the school bathroom.

Police are searching for a male colleague, a teacher also in his 20s who was known to the victim.

The man is believed to have gone missing near the Gap at Vaucluse following reports of a concern for welfare.

The independent co-ed school on Kent Street will be closed today and tomorrow for all students except those sitting Year 12 exams.

The only students onsite are those sitting exams, and we ask that the media does not seek to interrupt their concentration or state of mind as they sit exams that are significant for their graduation,” a representative from St Andrew’s Cathedral School said in a statement this morning.

An area of the school remains a crime scene and is not accessible to students.

A second crime scene has been set up in the Vaucluse area; inquiries are underway to determine if the two scenes are linked.

The school has confirmed that no students were involved and there is no ongoing threat; police have called for anyone with information about the incident to contact Day Street Police Station or Crime Stoppers.

Superintendent Martin Fileman provided an update on the investigation earlier this morning confirming the woman was found in a toilet area with fatal injuries.

Superintendent Fileman confirmed the death is being treated as suspicious; however, an impending post-mortem will determine the cause of death.
