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.Written by

The treasure seen in the trailer consists of "gold" coins. These are actually Bulgarian currency coins of 1 and 2 stotinki (cents) made of brass-plated steel, not gold. See more »
When the girls are at the school looking for the ring, the headmaster goes into his office and the painting on the wall is in perfect condition while all the girls rush out of the office secretly. Then, when they are in the van heading back to St. Trinian's, it shows that they ripped the painting to get the ring. See more »
Treasure Hunter, Come for naught, It seems your dreams have fallen short.
For pirate though I may have been, I ventured for a change of scene.
Resolving to change my ways, From sailing seas to mounting plays.
Writing many in this room, With Shakespeare as my on-De-ploom.
In you of gold I humbly pray, You'll kindly take my final play.
Anound did you find it hard, to credit that I was the bard.
The timely truth may now unfold, That all the while I was... a girl.

I saw this with my mum and my younger sister, amazingly we were the only people in the cinema (I'd have thought more people would have wanted to see it). In comparison to the first one, I would say that this one is more child friendly (hence the PG certificate) there is less dark and sexually orientated humour. However i didn't find it as funny (personally). However I loved it, the script is funny and the plot is ridiculous and strangely unpredictable, it also has one dance routine at a train station, which I thought was ingenious (I know, that's sad). One slight problem though- not enough of Gemma Arterton- Never mind, hopefully they'll be another sequel with lots more of her in it.
