After yet another successful Top Trumps Tournament last year, which saw our first-ever female Champion, we’re already busy organising this year’s Tournament.

Top Trumps have teamed up with BEAST QUEST, the best-selling series of children’s fantasy adventure novels. Like Top Trumps, the Beast Quest books are known to encourage reluctant young readers to immerse themselves in the subject matter and, as such, are a useful classroom resource. This year’s Tournament Welcome Pack will include a FREE pack of Beast Quest Top Trumps and there will be plenty more Beast Quest prizes and classroom resources being given out throughout the Tournament.

For those new to the Tournament, The National Top Trumps School Tournament is an annual event where thousands of schools up and down the country battle it out to find the UK’s Top Trumps Champion.

All participating schools receive a Welcome Pack which includes a Top Trumps Turbo game*, a poster, certificate and details on how to take part.

Over the course of the 6-week period, pupils play Top Trumps in school either in after school clubs, lunchtime or part of lesson time. In a simple process of elimination, schools eventually uncover their School’s Top Trumps Champion.

These winning Champions are then entered into the Online Elimination Round where they will play a digital version of Top Trumps online and compete to be in the Top 12 on the leaderboard.

The Top 12 players on the leaderboard will earn themselves a place in the Grand Final which takes place in June.

So, what are you waiting for? Make sure your school is registered to take part in this year’s Top Trumps Tournament:

  • If your school is a member of the Top Trumps School Club or your school took part in the Tournament last year, you will AUTOMATICALLY be registered to take part this year.
  • If you are new and would like to register for this year’s Top Trumps Tournament, please complete the registration form here

• Please note only NEW schools registering the Tournament will receive a Turbo game in their Welcome Pack. Schools that received a new Top Trumps Turbo game last year are asked to use this game again this year. All participating schools will receive a pack of Beast Quest Top Trumps cards to add to the Turbo 'hub'.
