"I am delighted with the fantastic support from students and staff on Autism Awareness day," said Mrs Barrett, the College's Senco.

"There was a fantastic array of onesies and students got involved in finding out more about autism and gained understanding about how people with the condition see the world differently."

Throughout the day students watched awareness videos, took part in quizzes and a competition to design a onesie.

Mrs Barrett said there was a "fantastic" atmosphere in the College with many students sharing experiences about family or friends who have the condition.

After school there was a parents' event where parents of students on the autistic spectrum in the college had tea and cake, networked with other parents and received advice from outside agencies about support, services and opportunities for their families.

"I would like to thank everyone for the amazing support," said Mrs Barrett.

"It was a fantastic day."
