Rugbytots

Rugbytots is a fun and dynamic pre-school play programme designed to build confidence and enhance core skills for 2 - 7 year old boys and girls. We look forward to meeting you and giving you a fun and friendly introduction to rugby in a positive and encouraging environment. Let’s make it more fun!
Make your child's development more fun!
Our fun, structured play sessions take children on a journey of sporting imagination with engaging and energetic coaches supporting them every step of the way whilst teaching how to catch, pass, kick, run with the ball and play as part of a team. 
Our motto
Our motto is simple; "make it more fun". We do this by delivering our specifically designed programme for each age group with energy, enthusiasm and excitement. This creates an atmosphere in the class that is totally unique and engaging for parents and children alike. 
What to expect
"Be prepared to run across the jungle, wade through the quick sand or sprint through Rugbytots Valley avoiding all the smoking boulders. Get ready to protect your egg, launch a missile or attack the pirates and seize the ship, all this of course, whilst trying to avoid the evil side lines!”

Spanish tuition

Fully qualified teacher of Spanish offers private tuition for all levels up to GCSE or A levels. Students who are falling behind and struggling to catch up with their class will be given support to progress beyond their predicted grades. I have experience with all range of students from the majority of our local primary and secondary school.

I have a very patient attitude. I believe everything can be explained in the simplest possible way and teaching is not only through being interactive and engaging with the students but also keeping them keen and captivated to learn.
