After wealthy philanthropist Piers Pomfrey has expressed an unusual interest in a ring found by her niece Annabelle, Miss Fritton explains that she is descended from a pirate who, in 1598, stole treasure from another pirate: Pomfrey's ancestor. The location of the treasure is to be found when the ring and its double are put together. Felonious ex-pupil Kelly and Miss Fritton's former lover Geoffrey are brought in to help the school steal the second ring from the evil Pomfrey's misogynistic secret society, leading to a showdown at the Globe Theater, and an amazing revelation as to the identity of pirate Captain Fritton, as well as that of William Shakespeare.

During scenes in the school by the stairs there is a white marble bust of a female head. It is a copy of Miss Fritton as played by Alastair Sim in the original black & white St. Trinians films. See more »
Kelly states that she now works for MI7 which was a real section of the British military intelligence but is no defunct and even when it was still in action it was concerned will propaganda and censorship which is a weird one for her to be involved in. See more »
Some women, Annabelle, are born great: Cleopatra, the queen, me. Some become great, like Mother Teresa or Lady Gaga. Others have greatness thrust upon them, like Monica Lewinsky.

This is an absolute Christmas cracker. I think it is slicker and more polished than the first film, and Rupert Everett is even better this time around as the eponymous Miss Fritton. It is camp, witty and outrageous and full of classic one liners. The new girls are hilarious and Tamsin Edgerton who played Chelsea has proved that her future career lies in comedy. Yes It's movie/panto for the masses, but that's half of its charm. At a time when England is in the grip of mass unemployment and recession, this is the kind of family comedy that everyone can enjoy. I cannot believe all of the bad reviews. That said, the vast majority of them are written by men aged 35-60. Go figure! At least the filmmakers know their target audience, unlike the people who's job it is to criticise. I'm sure it will be as successful as the first film. Top marks class. No detention for anyone.
