If political correctness sets your teeth on edge...

If you couldn't believe the (true) story about the school in Gloucester, England that banned the use of swimming goggles in the pool because the teacher might be distracted by helping a kid to adjust them when another kid was drowning...

If you find the relentless concentration on achievement and performance in the school education system more than a tad overdone...

If you aren't planning to send your daughter to the Cheltenham Ladies College (a real place)...

... then get some therapy for your repressed anarchic feelings and go see St Trinian's, an excellent, wonderfully non-PC remake by Ealing Studios of their original classic 1954 film "The Belles of St Trinians", inspired by the cartoons of Ronald Searle. The new version is a blast!



Read the BBC's review of the new movie here.

You will also find a good Ronald Searle Tribute page, looking forward to the new movie, here.
