As Miss Fritton, Alastair Sim appears in only two scenes. A leading model at the time, Sabrina got high billing, appearing in all the posters and publicity stills in school uniform, but she actually had a non-speaking part in which she was only required to lounge in bed reading a book while men hovered around her. She is described as the “school swot”, the only pupil to go to bed on time and where she reads the works of Dostoyevsky. Thorley Walters was to re-appear in The Pure Hell of St Trinian's, effectively replacing Richard Wattis as Culpepper-Brown's nerve-racked assistant. He was also to play the part of Culpepper-Brown himself in The Wildcats of St Trinian's in 1980. It was Rosalind Knight's first credited film role. She too later appeared in The Wildcats film, this time as a teacher.
