Students have been evacuated from an ultra-elite private college in Melbourne after a suspected bomb threat on Thursday afternoon.

Emergency services were called to Scotch College, an all-boys Presbyterian day and boarding school in Hawthorn, at about 2pm.

It's believed the college has been placed in lockdown and police are on the scene.

Dramatic overhead images show students flooding out onto the school ovals. 

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Victoria Police and the school for comment.

More to come.
