A secondary school in south London has been forced to evacuate after receiving a hoax bomb threat. 

The Oaks Park High School in Carshalton called police immediately after receiving the threat this morning.

Police advised staff and students to leave the building as officers rushed to the scene and carried out a search of the premises. 

Students were spoken to and reassured before they were sent home, an email to parents seen by MailOnline reveals. 

The letter says: ‘Dear Parent/Carer. I am writing to update you regarding an incident at school today.

‘Early this morning, the school received a hoax bomb threat. We acted immediately and contacted the police who advised we evacuate staff and students from the school building. 

‘The police arrived promptly and carried out a search of the school premises. At this point they also advised that students should be sent home.’
