STUDLEY High School pupils swapped their usual uniform for odd shoes to raise awareness of autism.

Students wore the miss matching shoes as part of their third Odd Shoe Day which celebrates differences within the school and raises money for the National Autistic Society.

The Crooks Lane school has a group called Project AIM which supports those who are on the autistic spectrum or who have family members who live with the condition.

Event organiser Samantha Lune said: "Project AIM meet weekly, to raise awareness of autism within our school community and beyond.

"Odd Shoe Day represents a choice to be different for one day, quite often people choose not to be different, someone with autism sadly does not have the choice as the condition is neurological and lifelong."
