12 finalists battled it out at the Top Trumps Schools Tournament this weekend, where Ashley Todd was crowned the winner.

The 11-year-old from Cumbria landed the official Top Trumps Schools Tournament title, after winning at the grand finals at Birmingham’s Thinktank Science Museum.

Claire Simon, marketing manager at Winning Moves, said: “Over the last seven years with these tournaments we’ve managed to entrench Top Trumps’ presence in the classroom with teachers, alongside its ever present playground presence.

“Before we initiated the Top Trumps Schools Tournament in 2010, educational leaders were hailing the cards as a perfect form of camouflaged teaching – that is, explaining key learning subjects in a fun and visual way.

"We’re delighted that both this rationale and Top Trumps Schools Championships are on an upward curve.”

This year, more than 2,500 primary schools from the UK entered the event, which is now in its seventh year.

Todd added: “I'm so happy that I won – my hands were shaking and I was the winner. I love playing Top Trumps. My favourite pack is Sports Stars.”

Lisa Stallard, manager at Thinktank, Birmingham Science Museum, commented: “We are delighted to have hosted the Top Trumps Schools Tournament Grand Final.

“The event’s space theme fits perfectly with the dynamic surroundings of our Science Museum where we’ve held lots of engaging activities about Tim Peake’s mission.”
