#### Anachronisms

When Flash comes to see what the girls are selling, the number plates on the car say GU06 SBX, but when he leaves the number plates read BN 0413. The new plates are German short time plates (registered in the city of Bonn) and they expired in April 2003.

#### Character error

The volume of a sphere is not pi * r^3 and Stephen Fry must surely know that.
The first time Geoffrey Thwaites is looking round St Trinians, he dips his index finger into the glass of vodka but licks his middle finger.
When the teacher gets off the Cheltenham Ladies' College coach and talks with the minister, she says: "Between you and I..." No real CLC teacher would have perpetrated that glaring grammatical mistake.
In the School Challenge final, the answer to the question "What is the volume of a sphere?" is given as pi r³, both by the show and the school bursar who says he's always been good with figures. The volume of a sphere is actually 4/3 pi r³. However the quote by the Bursar is a play on words as while he says 'figures' he's ogling the Spanish teacher.

#### Continuity

When Kelly writes 'HEIST' on the blackboard the 'e' and 'i' are joined together but in the next shot the letters are separate.
The bank manager gives Miss Fritton four weeks to raise £500,000 to avoid the school being foreclosed. However, at the School Challenge final, Chelsea says she has been preparing for the show for six weeks, despite entering the competition only as part of a plan to get the money to avoid foreclosure.
At the shooting range, the teacher with the machine gun shoots the heads off several of the "ducks". But when the girls with ducks on their heads come up, a second later, all three ducks are intact.
Whilst they are deciding how to raise the money, Number 4 - Kidnapping, or K.Nap - is there in one shot, then vanishes, then reappears with another option (Blackmail, or B.Mail) in number 5 that has not been there previously.
When the girls are crawling back along the cable, there is a shot from just in front of Stephen Fry which shows them behind him, when every other shot shows that the cable is over the audience.
Kelly puts her left hand thumb and index finger in her mouth to whistle, but in the next shot she takes out both her index fingers.
Whe Geoffrey tastes the vodka, he puts his index finger in the drink but he sucks his middle finger.
When the girls toured the gallery the Vermeer is on the ground floor but later when the girl go back to steal the painting it's now on the first floor.
When the emos are doing their part of Annabelle's makeover, they take out the style the chavs put there, but the posh totties did their makeover between the two.

#### Factual errors

When Cheltenham Ladies College arrive on their school bus to play hockey, the name of the town is wrongly spelled "Chelteham" on the side of the bus.
When Russell Brand is teaching a lesson he asks the students to name crimes that can be commited, with the first being extortion in, which he spells "extortian" on the blackboard.
During the School Challenge, the answer to the volume of a sphere was given as pi.r-cubed, whereas it is actually 4/3.pi.r-cubed.

#### Revealing mistakes

When the girls first get off the bus and stampede through Trafalgar Square, we can see members of the public are being held back behind railings to keep them out of the girls path. They're also very obviously watching filming.
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.
When the girls slowly walk up the National Gallery steps before the quiz final, we can see people in the background sitting on the fountains watching filming. Although it wouldn't be unlikely that a load of guys would watch intently as some attractive girls in short skirts walked by, There is also a line of peoples heads barely visible behind the top step. They're obviously being kept back to avoid disrupting filming.
When the first years are styling Annabelle, two of them are shown using brushes. But, when they show Annabelle's face, the arms styling her clearly belong to larger/taller people.
