Who we are
We are a family-run business, specialising in supplying the best quality school uniforms and school sportswear, with solid values of excellent customer service, ethical sourcing of garments and massive buying power, the benefits of which we delight in passing on to our customers with the most competitive prices and the widest choice.
We have a UK-wide network of retail branches, where you'll find experienced people providing the best advice on uniforms and fitting, in convenient High Street locations.
We also provide full on-site school shop services to a growing number of schools, where we not only staff the shop at hours to suit the school timetable; we also manage stock levels, taking the headache away from the school, but leaving the benefits of an excellent service for parents and pupils alike, right on the doorstep.
Our buying power is awesome; we enjoy great supplier relationships stretching back over many years, and are able to source the best fabrics and uniforms at the most competitive prices. These are then passed on to our many customers.
Who is behind all of this? Well, the John Cheatle Group was founded in 1937 and is still a family-run business today, with a third-generation Cheatle, Justin, at the helm. We turn over £15 million per year and provide services to around 2500 schools in the UK and elsewhere.
