No sooner is Annabelle Fritton (Riley) dumped at her aunt Camilla’s (Everett) notorious girl’s school, St Trinian’s, by her unscrupulous father Carnaby (also Everett), than financial woes and a hardline Education Minister (Firth) seem to spell the end for the institution. But the anarchic pupils aren’t going to let their beloved home go without a fight.
The target audience - pre-teen girls - aren’t going to notice the many shortfalls behind the camera. What they’ll enjoy, regardless of quality, is some naughtiness true to the spirit of the series, Russell Brand and Girls Aloud. For the rest of us it’s tougher going with mostly Everett and Firth to see us through.
