The 5th National Top Trumps Schools Tournament is now underway with Schools up and down the country playing Top Trumps to discover their school’s Top Trumps Champion!

By the 7th April, Champions from all over the UK will all start battling it out online to try to earn a place in the Top Trumps Tournament Grand Final that will be held in London on Saturday 7 June.


About the Tournament

The Tournament has three stages, the Schools Tournament, the Online Elimination Round, and the Live Tournament Final in London.

Schools can play the Schools Tournament at a time that is convenient to their school. This can either be done in lesson time or even as lunchtime or after-school clubs. All you need is at least six children taking part (although many schools involve whole year groups!) and a school representative to run and organise the Tournament in a way that suits your school. By the end of the six week period, you should have found your School Top Trumps Champion through a simple process of elimination and a grand final at your school!

Online Elimination Round: once you have found your School’s Top Trumps Champion, you then submit his or her name to us using the form on the Schools Tournament website. You will then receive a unique password for your champion to use during the Online Elimination Round. Champions have six weeks to play.

Champions in the Top 12 places on the online leaderboard on Friday 2nd of May will be invited to attend the Live Tournament Final in London.
