IMDb profile

St Trinian's is the sixth in a long-running series of films based on the works of cartoonist Ronald Searle.

Plot

St Trinian's is an anarchic school for uncontrollable girls who save the school from bankruptcy by stealing the painting 'Girl With A Pearl Earring'. The film starts with meek and timid Annabelle Fritton being admitted to the school. She meets Kelly, head girl, who shows her around the school and introduces the various cliques in the school - Posh Tottys, Chavs, Emos, Geeks and First Years. Annabelle has a rough first night in the school when her towel and dressing gown are taken from the shower and she is broadcast on the internet by the other girls while running naked from the shower to the dormitory. She phones her father and demands to be taken away from the school. St Trinians is a fictional girls school created by Ronald Searle, a British cartoonist. ... For other uses, see Girl with a Pearl Earring (disambiguation). ... Look up chav, charva in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ... Look up emo in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ... The word geek is a slang term, noting individuals as a peculiar or otherwise odd person, especially one who is perceived to be overly obsessed with one or more things including those of intellectuality, electronics, gaming, etc. ...


Flash Harry pays a visit to the school and makes a deal with the girls for some lab-made vodka. The last batch had side effects including blindness, paralysis, and death, all symptoms of methanol poisoning, indicating lack of care in distillation of the liquor.


A few days later the school has a hockey match against Annabelle's old school - their rivals Cheltenham Ladies' College. The Cheltenham captain is Verity Thwaites, daughter of the education minister. The girls give a hostile and violent welcome to their visitors and the match ends in a brawl between the two schools. Later, Annabelle overhears her father telling her aunt that he doesn't think Annabelle fits in with the family, which hurts her feelings. Later that day, her aunt makes her feel a part of the family and gets her to release her anger. The other girls at the school give Annabelle a make-over and make her feel part of the school. Meanwhile the education minister is inspecting the school and the bank is threatening it with closure. Cheltenham Ladies College is an independent boarding and day school for girls, located in Cheltenham, a spa town in the English Cotswolds in the county of Gloucestershire. ...


Kelly hears the talk about closure and tells the rest of the school. They then concoct a plan to save the school by getting to the final of "School Challenge" and stealing the painting 'Girl with a Pearl Earring'. Meanwhile Annabelle tries to persuade Flash Harry to act as a gay German art dealer. He initially refuses but Kelly gets him to do the job (as he secretly has feelings for her and does not want to look stupid in front of her). The school team for School Challenge is made up of the three of the Posh Tottys, Chelsea, Peaches and Chloe. They get to the final by cheating.


During the final Kelly, Taylor and Andrea foil the security for the painting that they're after and eventually retrieve it but on the way back the cable that they used to climb over the top of the audience of the final of School Challenge snaps just after Taylor and Andrea get over to the other side. Kelly gets stuck with no way to get to other side again. Mrs Fritton sees that Kelly needs help and goes to save the day, having to knock out education minister Geoffrey Thwaites on the way. Meanwhile Annabelle takes care of Verity.


The school successfully gets the painting and sells it to Carnaby Fritton who doesn't realise it is not the real one which has been returned under the cover of St Trinians finding it. They receive a £50,000 reward for returning the painting and with the cash from Carnaby Fritton they pay back the money owed to the bank and St Trinian's stays in business. The final scene concludes with a sexual romp between Colin Firth and Rupert Everett.
