Director: Anand Tucker
Stars: Jim Broadbent, Colin Firth, Juliet Stevenson

After their infamous Headmistress Miss Fritton is arrested, the girls are horrified to discover the new Headmaster is turning the school co-ed. Boys at St Trinian's! Can the girls face down this latest threat to the school?



Cast overview, first billed only:
Esme Thompson ...
Bel Parker ...


St Trinians proudly continues to represent the unacceptable face of British education. When the new Minister of Education announces he will personally sort the place out he doesn't realise either the enormity of the task or that the headmistress is an old flame. The school is anyway threatened with closure by their bank; with the staff clearly a waste of space the girls realise the responsibility to save the day falls on them. Perhaps a painting popularised by Scarlett Johansson might be the way out? Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

The picture in Miss Fritton's study is a painting of Alastair Sim, as he played the original role in the original films. The bust that is destroyed by Annabelle's hockey blow also has the features of Sim. See more »


When Kelly suggests stealing the painting when the girls are brainstorming with Flash, the 'Posh Tottie' girls react by signing 'Oh my God'. However, the girl on the left makes the 'Oh' sign with her hand too early, and tries to hide her grin. See more »


Flash Harry: What's this then? A sweet? A mini cigar?

Taylor: They're tampons Flash.

WARNING- This film WILL surprise you.
8 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

From the ashes of Ealing rises a film worthy of the studio name.

A fun packed, good natured, girl-powered romp complete with obligatory wacky robbery plot so beloved of the studios' classics. Though the plotting wavers the abundant energy carries it through with hardly a glitch. Rupert Everett is a revelation and Colin Firth wisely plays it straight even whilst sending himself up.

A very UK film with lots of in-jokes for us 30 somethings (loved the 'Another Country' line), funny lines and nicely sketched stereotypes for younger girls to admire and younger boys to fancy.

Great for a family trip or as a personal time-passer, it sold out continuously in Glasgow for weeks, although a sequel really isn't warranted.

Enjoy it as the stand alone little gem it is, harking back to the days when films were self-contained little classics rather than potential sequel spinners.

My comedy of 2007!

P.S.- Remember to stay for the 'Girls Aloud' title song credits!
