An estate agency is sharing in the sporting successes of a south-east London school.

The Blackheath branch of JLL has lent its support to fitness-loving youngsters at the town’s Colfe’s School for the past four years.

The independent school caters for students aged three and 18 and JLL has paid for the kit worn by the boys’ First XV Rugby and girls’ First VII Netball teams when competing at both school and national level.

The girls have reached he final eight in the Kent region of the National Schools’ Netball Competition and the boys are fighting it out in the NatWest Cup.

Director at JLL South East Graham Lawes said: “JLL has been a long term supporter of sport at Colfe’s School and are proud to continue to do so.

“Sport plays such an important role in schools, it teaches pupils how to work as a team and also encourages them to enjoy physical activity, it’s great to be a part of that and we wish our teams every success with the season.”

Director of Sport at Colfe’s School Nicci Rayes said: “The players have a real sense of unity and pride to be playing in their JLL sponsored kit, and it gives them an extra level of professionalism that gives them the edge over the competition.”
