This is another of the successful films based on the popular cartoon drawings of Ronald Searle. This time out the naughty girls of the infamous St. Trinian's school are brought to court for setting their alma mater ablaze. They are freed, however, when Parker, a mysterious professor from

the University of Baghdad, claims he can rehabilitate the lot. He is financed by James, unaware that Parker wants these girls as wives for a sheik and his many sons. Parker takes the older girls on a tour of the Greek Islands aboard a luxury yacht. Secretly aboard also is Grenfell, a police

sergeant who's been ordered to follow the girls and relay any pertinent information to Lamble, her police inspector and long-time fiance. When the ship goes off course, she wires back to Lamble. But before anything can be done about the situation, James finds her and puts her in a lifeboat to

drift out to sea, along with Parker and Cole, St. Trinian's unofficial matrimonial agent. The younger students set Walters and Barker adrift as well, mistakenly believing that this will help the older girls. They arrive at the sheik's palace and the sons try to have their pick. But the girls fight

back in a madcap free-for-all, utilizing the help of the younger girls. The police arrive as well, and all are saved. The film comes full circle, ending with the girls celebrating by once more burning down the school. This picture is briskly paced, with dialog that is fast, furious, and witty.
