A headmistress attempts to keep peace at Britain’s most infamous girls’ school
This was the first of a series of five comedy films that were based on the fictional St Trinian’s School. This one features a stock shot of London Paddington station with trains visible in the platforms, a distant shot of a GWR 4-6-0 on an express passing through the countryside, and a brief comedy scene filmed at Seer Green and Jordans station. The platform boarding scene with the ‘school special’ was a studio set.
