Clubbers get into Holy spirit

27th April 2001 at 01:00
Holy Trinity College in Bromley has been turning out morally upstanding young Catholic women for more than a century. "School Disco", on the other hand, is a "romping" London club where "grown-ups can relive their schooldays by break-dancing, smoking in the bogs, snogging to slowies and drinking booze openly!"

Unfortunately for Holy Trinity (fees pound;5,595 a year), its distinctive blazer is a favourite with the celebrity crowd who frequent the "raunchy" School Disco. Even more worryingly a photograph of a saucy twentysomething flaunting the school's badge over a miniskirt has been splashed all over the national press in the club's publicity drive, prompting howls of protest from the old girls' association and a demand for the club to stop using the offending pic.

But Bobby Sanchez, club co-founder, says: "We have so many girls coming every week with that uniform. They wear the same stuff and all seem to be former pupils." Do the old girls protest too much?
