Students at an elite private school have been permitted to relocate out of Sydney’s extended lockdown while others are forced to learn from home.

Year 9 students at Scots College will spend six months boarding at the school’s regional campus Glengarry, about 160km south west of Sydney in Kangaroo Valley.

However, NSW Health did not deem the trip to be an excursion due to its length.

Principal Dr Ian Lambert in a statement refuted reports the school had sought an exemption.

“The college sought guidance, advice, and received approval from NSW Health for students to travel and commence their boarding at the Glengarry campus of The Scots College,” he said.

“Similarly, guidance and advice were sought from the Association for Independent Schools NSW in relation to the operation of boarding schools.”
