Debden Park High School netball teams have secured a sponsorship deal for the second successive year thanks to success in the West Essex Netball Leagues.
As the students have moved up an academic year the squad has grown to have two teams of Year 10 and Year 11 girls.
Both teams won their leagues last year and and both teams are so far undefeated in the league this year.
Head of PE Jen Perry said: "As always I am proud of our students, they put so much hard work into training and matches, compete on Saturdays, and help coach the younger students.
"Having the sponsor and brand new kit certainly helps us maintain their professional attitude towards representing the school, and is motivating for the younger years."
Donna Barker, director of North Weald-based building and civil engineering contractors Gillard & Sons Ltd, said: "Gillard's are both pleased and extremely proud to sponsor the under-16 netball teams again this year.
"The girls commitment to the game, and of course their training, is incredible and we wish them all the very best with their forthcoming games and tournaments."
So far the Debden Park teams have beaten Davenant Foundation School, Braeside School, West Hatch High School and King Harold Academy and are hoping again to take the District League title which will put them in the play-offs against Harlow schools.
