Virtual Secondary Games

We are delighted to launch the Virtual Games, hosted by The British School of Brussels.

The Virtual Games is an exciting opportunity for Secondary students to compete against their international peers through a virtual Swimming and Cross-Country Meet. The Games is open to all COBIS schools, including Applicant schools.

Participating schools will host their own meets between 31 January and 28 February, and submit their students' scores for ranking. 

To allow for some live competition, schools are encouraged to organise meets with other ‘local’ COBIS schools. 

Results will be announced in mid-March.


The Virtual Games is open to Middle School and High School students at COBIS schools:

  • Middle School refers to students born between 1 September 2007 and 31 August 2010. 
  • High School refers to students born between 1 September 2003 and 31 August 2007.
