A north London school has been forced to temporarily close due to a cyber attack on its computer systems.

Highgate Wood School, with 1,500 pupils, has had to remain shut for another week following the school summer holiday.

Computer systems at the Crouch End school have been taken down by the attack, causing confusion for online timetables, classes and homework.

The school says it is confident it will reopen on 11 September.

A spokesperson said it could not make other provisions for the children while the systems were down.
