Mr Leishman was granted bail by Parramatta Bail Court on Saturday to appear in Katoomba Local Court on Wednesday.
In 2016, Mr Leishman told the Blue Mountains Gazette that he was "mates" with students.
"We're all mates too. I can tell these guys off, and slap them on the back and tell them 'well done' as well. The friendships are genuine, down from Year 12 to the youngest student," he said.
The arrest comes several months after the unrelated arrest of a Katoomba High teacher on six charges of sexual assault.
