A 16-year-old boy has been charged with stabbing and sexually assaulting a female student during a frenzied attack on a school in northeast Adelaide.

Police were called to Avenues College, in the suburb of Windsor Gardens, on Wednesday after reports that a young woman had been attacked with a box cutter and scissors.

It is alleged that the boy indecently assaulted the 18-year-old student before stabbing her multiple times in the throat, lower left leg and abdomen.

An 18-year-old woman (pictured) was taken to hospital in serious condition on Wednesday, with police charging a 16-year-old boy from Salisbury North with the alleged stabbing.

Paramedics arrived at the scene and they were transported by ambulance to the Royal Adelaide Hospital in serious condition.

The alleged disaster caused the school to be shut down with reports that some students were being told to hide under their desks.

Police later arrested a 16-year-old boy from Salisbury North and charged him with harming another and indecent assault.

He was released on bail and is due to appear before the Adelaide Youth Court on September 30.

The teenager suffered minor injuries and was treated by the school.

A 13-year-old boy was charged with aggravated assault, habitual assault and carrying an offensive weapon, and appeared before the Juvenile Court on Wednesday.

He was released on bail and his next hearing is scheduled for September.
