Autumn fungus

The Ackworth School Natural History Society went on a fungus foray in the school grounds and found a range of species. Amongst them, there was an attractive fungus with a blue, slimy cap, white gills and a stem tinged with blue. I have tried to identify this and I think it is probably Stropharia caerulea (Blue Roundhead) but it could be Stropharia aeruginosa (Verdigris Roundhead).
