About Michael Sehgal & Sons Ltd

Leading Multi-Channel School Uniform Suppliers in the North East

About our operations

Michael Sehgal & Sons Ltd was established over 30 years ago under the discerning eye of Founder and Mentor Mr Michael Sehgal MBE.

Mr Sehgal was a keen philanthropist and Rotarian, and during his lifetime, he was a Patron to and Supporter of many local causes. He was passionate about education and established the Michael Sehgal Charitable Trust in order to provide further education scholarships to students with little or no means.  As a businessman, he was absolutely committed to supplying the best quality, bespoke school uniforms at affordable, value for money prices.

The next generation continue to adhere to these founding principles and strive to provide distinctive, high quality uniforms, faster and more economically than ever.  The result of working closely with schools, is to achieve aspirational uniforms and PE kits.  

Covid Crisis

During the Covid crisis the Michael Sehgal Charitable Trust has been making regular food donations to the West End Food Bank with help of Asda.  This includes many every day essential, non-perishable, items such as tinned foods, pasta, cereals, rice, and UHT milk.

We recognise that as this crisis continues, there are an increasing number of people within our local community, who are struggling to provide food for their families.  As a local business, we feel that it is our responsibility to support these communities as best we can.

How we work

Our core team members have been with us for over 30 years and have amassed a wealth of experience which makes them well equipped to deal with the year-round demands of uniform supply.  We recognise that every School is individual and requires a tailored solution to satisfy the needs of all its stakeholders.  We pride ourselves in providing a service which is both reliable & professional; and which is specifically tailored to the school’s requirements.  

Customer satisfaction takes the highest priority, as our testimonials clearly demonstrate.  Once we accept a School project, we are committed to delivering on all levels, exceeding school and parent expectations at every stage and establishing an enduring partnership between ourselves and the communities which we serve.

Delivery Solutions

We offer a wide range of delivery options to relieve schools entirely, of the administrative and financial burdens of school wear supply.  This includes the following service platforms:

  • Wholesale supply direct to schools;
  • Online supply via our E-commerce website (with Secure Parent and School Logins for online ordering);
  • School supply, Via our POPUPSCHOOLSHOP  
  • Telephone & Mail order supply; and
  • Local supply, via our School uniform shop

Our Values

High quality, value for money, reliability and professionalism are standards adhered to not only by our team, they are shared by our business partners in the UK and Overseas.  

Our long established relations with key producers in the industry ensure continuity of quality standards, adherance to production schedules and the best value for money for our customers. 

We also closely monitor our suppliers’ factory accreditation to ensure that stringent ethical and trading policies are applied in the production of our school wear, giving parents and schools peace of mind.

Investment in Stock

Our investment in stock 365 days a year, ensures responsiveness to demand and stock continuity on all our core products; this gives our customers the much-needed reassurance that products will be on the shelf when they are required.

Operations across the world

Many of our garments are produced especially for us by our partners in the UK and abroad providing us with ultimate design flexibility and customisation. For our customers, this means we are able to add bespoke touches including cording, braiding, special trims and linings, resulting in a unique and distinctive final product.


At Michael Sehgal & Sons our aim is to make the customers’ experience as comfortable and easy as possible and in this endeavour we, actively embrace diversity.

Our newly rebuilt store is inclusively designed and promotes accessibility throughout.  We belief this is a standard and not a luxury and to take this to the next level, we have taken the decision to invest in Power Operated Doors (POD), with touch technology, which as far as we are concerned, is another step in the right direction. This will be a great addition to the wheelchair access, wider changing rooms and lower counters which we have already, in store.

Did you know that we also have multi-lingual staff in our store? Our staff are able to converse with parents and students in Urdu, Bengali, Hindi, and Punjabi as well as English which may of course, be extremely beneficial for students of ethnic origin.  

We continue to pursue our aim to lead with innovative improvements in the provision of school wear and we will of course keep you updated of further developments in this area.

"In short, we take care of absolutely everything from fittings to distribution, freeing up school staff to focus on what's really important".

The quality and range of products coupled with their superb organisational skills, experience and professionalism, were second to none The new uniform will form a huge part of our identity, culture and ethos and the entire Sehgal team worked extremely hard to ensure that every item was absolutely right for us and our students. The company listened at each stage of our consultation and responded with the utmost efficiency and effectiveness throughout, demonstrating absolute flexibility at every juncture. Their multi-channel approach to fitting and supplying the uniform was specifically tailored to meet the needs of our parents and students. The feedback regarding the new uniform and the entire transition process has been absolutely first class. I am very excited at the prospect of seeing 1350 students in the new uniform in September and know that they will look fantastic! I cannot thank Michael Sehgal & Sons enough for their incredible advice, support and expertise throughout the past few months and would most certainly recommend them to any other school seeking to change their uniform.

  • We took a huge risk when we decided to change our school polo shirts to ones that our children designed but Michael Sehgal & Sons were most resourceful in helping us to source the correct colours for us in a quality and flexible solution that was cheaper than our existing uniform. The end result has been tremendously well received and we are are grateful to this ongoing partnership.

  • When we decided to change our uniform at Thorp Academy Michael Seghal & Sons worked with us to select the highest quality uniform at cost effective prices. They measured, fitted and delievered nearly 1000 blazers and ties 4 weeks ahead of schedule. The uniform stills looks as good today as it did at the start of the year. They continue to support us at parents events and ensure that all of our needs are catered for. We have a very strong partnership and look forward to working with Michael Seghal & Sons further.

  • Its a challenging time making changes and implementing new school uniform. Michael Sehgal & Sons have worked with us, giving a personalised service to choose high quality, cost effective, long lasting items of uniform, from jumpers and cardigans to polo shirts and hoodies.

  • To complement our new school ethos of excellence, compassion and respect for all we decided it was timely to update our uniform to ensure that parents were receiving a quality product that was both value for money, and easy to launder as well as something that was smart and that our students would be proud to wear. During the whole process Michael Sehgal and Sons have been absolutely fantastic. We consulted with several suppliers but after a full consultation process, felt confident that Michael Sehgal and Sons were the company best suited to deliver our vision. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with them. The team have advised on every aspect of the uniform and we have benefitted from their vast experience of introducing a new uniform. Their attention to detail is superb and I am very impressed by their flexible and customer focused attitude; nothing is a problem to them (They worked tirelessly for example to ensure that our new logo was right for us). I am delighted that we chose Michael Sehgals to be our uniform suppliers and would highly recommend them. We have had many compliments from our local community on our new uniform and I look forward to continuing to work with Michael Sehgals into the future.

  • Michael Sehgal was recommended to us from staff and parents from other secondary schools. From the very first meeting we had with the team it was clear to us how committed and professional they were and we immediately felt comfortable discussing our requirements with them, their years of experience working with schools was very apparent. We felt confident that Michael Sehgal could offer us and more importantly our families a friendly, professional service and this made our decision to change suppliers a very easy one. The quality of uniform is excellent and the service is outstanding. The feedback from our families has been very positive, and our students look very smart in their new uniforms. We look forward to working with Michael Sehgal in future, and we would have no hesitation in recommending their service to other schools.

  • I wanted to put on record the continued gratitude to you and your company for your support of our asylum seeker pupils. As you know it is so important that they are smart and comfortable at school and are able to feel fully part of their new school. Thanks to the Directors of Michael Sehgal and Sons our asylum seeker pupils are all able to feel confident and ready to learn. The rollout of the new uniforms for Dukes, Bishops and Castle Schools have all gone really smoothly thanks to the efficiency of you and all your staff.

  • At St Mary's Catholic School we have been very impressed with the quality of our new school uniform for Year 7 from Michael Sehgal & Sons Ltd. The company have been very efficient and supportive in their work with our school and we are thankful for the commitment they have shown towards our students and their families.

    Emma Patterson
    Deputy Head Teacher St Mary's Catholic School

  • Michael Sehgal & Sons made the process of changing our school uniform simple from start to finish. The introduction of an online platform was new for our school but has proved easy to use and very popular with our parents; the option of parents being able to have a payment plan to spread the cost was also very helpful. Michael Sehgal & Sons have been really accommodating, any issue or query we had was resolved very quickly and they even offered to tailor make uniform for a pupil we have with a form of dwarfism. The uniform provided by Michael Sehgal was smart and good quality. We have even had compliments from the wider community on just how well presented our students look in their new uniform. We cannot fault the service we have received and would most certainly recommend Michael Sehgal & Sons to another school without any hesitation.
