About the Specsavers ‘Virtual’ Sussex School Games

The Specsavers ‘Virtual’ Sussex School Games has been created by Active Sussex, the Sussex School Games Organisers Network and the Sussex School Games Local Organising Committee as an alternative competition for schools in response to COVID-19 restrictions, and school closures.

There have been two editions of the Specsavers ‘Virtual’ Sussex School Games; initially a 12-week competition in the summer term of 2020, and a 4-week winter sports version, The Winter Games, held in February 2021. Tens of thousands of children (and adults) representing several hundred different schools have taken part weekly.

About the School Games

The School Games is a national programme, funded by Sport England through National Lottery funding and supported by the Department of Culture Media and Sport and the Department of Health.

In Sussex, the School Games is delivered by the Sussex Local Organising Committee, Active Sussex and the Sussex School Games Organiser network, and supported by headline sponsor, Specsavers, along with a range of key partners.
