Dress Code

Sixth Form students should dress smartly and appropriately for a working day ‘in the office’.  Remember The Mandeville School Sixth Form is your place of work and clothes worn here may be different from how you dress when not at school, in other words not casual wear. Sixth Form students should be sensitive to our community and younger students when considering how to dress.
