After their infamous Headmistress Miss Fritton is arrested, the girls are horrified to discover the new Headmaster is turning the school co-ed. Boys at St Trinian's! Can the girls face down this latest threat to the school?
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

This is the second time that both David Tennant ( Sir Piers Pomfrey) and Talulah Riley (Annabelle Fritton) have worked together. Talulah guest starred in Doctor Who during David Tennant's time as The Doctor. The episode was a two episode story 'Silence in the Library and The Forest of the Dead' during the fourth season of Doctor Who. 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.
