A Buckinghamshire secondary school will partially be closed TODAY [Monday, January 29], following a cyberattack that infiltrated its computer system last week.

The Misbourne School, which is based in Great Missenden, was virtually attacked on Thursday, January 25.

Once it was attacked, the school was forced to shut that day and remained out of bounds on Friday, January 26.

And despite the weekend passing, the educational building, which currently has around 1,060 students, will once again remain shut today.

In a statement that was issued by the school following the attack, they said: “As a consequence of a cyberattack impacting infrastructure and operations, the Misbourne will be closed to students in Years 7-10 and Year 12 on Monday, January 29. 

“Students in Years 11 and 13 should attend school as normal. 

“The Headteacher has written to all families with more information.

“We are aware the closure will disrupt families; if families have any immediate concerns please email safeguarding@themisbourne.co.uk which will be monitored throughout the day.”

An update about whether the school reopen on January 30 will be announced in due course.
