Dora Bryan and her unruly girls go for honours!
30 May 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A lesser St Trinian's film, this does benefit from scatty Dora Bryan as the headmistress; Raymond Huntley as her MP beau; Richard Wattis and co as men from the ministry; and Frankie Howerd, Reg Varney, Arthur Mullard and others as train robbers.

If you have seen the other films, you know the formula. The St Trinian's schoolgirls are little terrors who frighten the life out of authority and everyone else. The teachers are boozers, smokers, fighters, and gamblers. Put these together and the plot will sizzle.

Not as good as the others, and drags a bit towards the end, but it is a fun film which diverts for at least an hour.
