National Schools Top Trumps Tournament
Finalists and Winners



Nine year old William Gooch-Page from Elloughton Primary School in Yorkshire, has been crowned the National 2015 Schools Top Trumps Tournament champion after battling it out with 11 other hopefuls from across the country.

The final took place at Chessington World of Adventures last weekend (27 June) and determined William Gooch-Page as the champion after three live rounds of strategic Beast Quest themed Top Trumps.

"It's the first time I've ever won a competition. I was really nervous but I’m really, really pleased that I won!"

said William Gooch-Page. Teacher, Lynette Cope from Elloughton Primary School said:

"We are so proud to have a national winner in our school! William Gooch-Page overcame enormous pressure on the day and came away with the highest score amongst his peer."




"We've been building up to this for months with internal school tournaments, an online elimination round and then the national final.

Top Trumps is a timeless game and one that we love seeing in our school. It's a wonderful feeling to have come so far in this annual tournament- and now be top of the pack!"

William Gooch-Page’s champion prize includes an iPad mini and a Top Trumps goodie bag and a series of Beast Quest books and a bean bag for his school, reflecting this year's partnership with the bestselling children's fantasy adventure novels. Throughout the tournament the contestants played with Beast Quest themed Top Trumps to test their mastery at the game.

The successful Top Trumps School Tournament has been running for six years and continues to engage Primary School children by testing their powers of observation and recall and encouraging winning tactics whilst in a fun and engaging environment.
