A former teacher at a well-known Melbourne independent school has appeared in court charged with sexually assaulting seven people, including students.

Trevor Spurritt​, who taught at Camberwell Grammar School, is charged with 14 counts of indecent assault relating to offences allegedly committed against seven males.

Charge sheets released by Melbourne Magistrates Court on Wednesday allege Mr Spurritt offended between 1969 and 1972, and in 1991.

Mr Spurritt, 74, of Mitcham, was last week charged after allegations emerged he molested a 12-year-old boy on a school camp and in a classroom in the 1970s.

He is no longer listed as a registered teacher on the Victorian Institute of Teaching website.

Defence counsel Dermot​ Dann, QC, told the court his client denied all the allegations and that the case would be contested in court.

Magistrate Andrew McKenna extended Mr Spurritt's bail for him to return to court in June for a three-day hearing which will determine whether he stands trial.
