A former employee at Parramatta Girls' Training School has been committed to trial over alleged historical sexual assaults against schoolgirls.

Frank John Valentine was last year charged with more than 30 offences from the 1970s including rape, assaulting a female and committing an act of indecency, and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

Court documents show the 77-year-old was further charged about six months ago with another five historical offences against a male.

At Parramatta Local Court on Thursday, Magistrate Jennifer Giles committed Valentine to trial after he waived his right to a committal hearing.

He is scheduled to be arraigned in the NSW District Court on December 7.
