Can you restrict a space and its content to a set list of users only (also stopping the admins from getting access)?

We have an old version of Confluence 5.5.1 which will be upgraded at some stage but for now on the old version. I am being asked for a secure space, secure meaning only a set list of people can get into the space and the Confluence admins cannot get access.

I am guessing i know the answer to this but thought i would ask anyway.

Restricted spaces are easy - just don't add the users you don't want in them in the permissions.

You can't hide from your admins though.  They don't have to be part of the space, but admins can always see spaces and amend the permissions to let themselves in.

You have to trust your admins.
