Where Is Sex Education Filmed?

Sex Education is back on Netflix - and one thing we all want to know is - where is it actually filmed?

The hit comedy-drama series from Netflix is now in its third season, with a fourth season officially on the way.

New characters have joined Otis and the gang this term, including Headmistress Hope Haddon, who plans on restoring Moordale to its former glory - good luck to her with that one. There's also Cal, a non-binary student, and Headmaster Groff's brother, Peter, to look out for.

Where is Sex Education filmed?

Sex Education is filmed in various locations in Wales, mainly in Wye Valley in the south of the country.

Moordale High is actually a disused university building on the Caerleon campus at the University of South Wales, which housed students until 2016.

According to Conde Nast Traveller, "its 32 acres were once used to house around 4,500 students, but now its early-20th-century brickwork and striking clock tower are the basis for the show's Anglo-American high-school hybrid."

Ever wondered where the gym is? That's filmed in the Paget Rooms in Penarth, which is just south of Cardiff.

Other key locations for the series, such as the 'Sex Education house' are located along the Welsh border, in Wye Valley and the Forest of Dean.

When is Sex Education set?

As you may have guessed by the eccentric shell suits and dingey yellow school lockers, Sex Education is inspired by the 1980s, but is set in the modern day, which the writers say adds to the nostalgic 'other-worldly' vibe of the show.

The show's writer, Laurie Nunn, explained that Moordale High is "very much a fictional place," and so the 1980s feel would only heighten that sense of it being a fictional world full of teenage nostalgia.

"We see it like a teenage utopia, and I like to think of it almost like a comic book world where these teenagers exist."
