If you watched Sex Education’s seasons, you must have wondered where the various scenes were filmed. To help you out, we’ve provided a list of Sex Education filming locations. Thus, Sex Education is said to have a tearful departure because the last season has just aired.
The fourth and final season of the beloved Moordale students is now streaming on Netflix, and it features one final nookie-filled frolic for Otis, Eric, Maeve, and the other students. The gang is moving to a different school this time because Moordale has closed, where they will have more adventures before saying goodbye for good.
The Wye Valley on the English/Welsh border is once again a recurring theme in this episode. Sex Education’s location manager, Deon Du Preez, offers fresh spots to, well, spot. Du Preez claims that there are countless opportunities at the locations where we film, which are primarily in Wales.
Where Is Sex Education Filmed?
Since Sex Education’s premiere in 2019, Otis’s family’s residence, a 100-year-old Norwegian-style chalet with ludicrous views, has grown in popularity. His mother, sex therapist Jean (Gillian Anderson), who is going through a breakup, is a character in the new season of the show.
Expect many sincere conversations between the mother and son as a result. Since 2021, the house in Symonds Yat, Herefordshire, a hamlet with views of the lovely Wye Valley, has been available for up to 10 guests to rent on Airbnb.
Moordale High was first recorded on the University of South Wales’ former Caerleon campus, which is no longer there. Instead, the kids are relocating to Cavendish Sixth Form College, a new educational setting, with their books, crushes, and growing pains.
The school’s exterior was filmed at the St. Fagans National Museum of History in Cardiff. Since it’s so accessible and always has a range of historical buildings documenting Wales’s social history, it wasn’t even shut down while filming.
About five to twenty meters to the right of the picture, according to Du Preez, there was a queue of people waiting to enter the museum. According to the location manager, Cavendish was originally supposed to look significantly different from the ultra-modernist building you’ll see in season 4.
We started putting concepts together based on the premise that we wanted a brutalist building and ultimately decided that, in an ideal world, something resembling the Natural Museum of History (St. Fagans) would be fantastic.
In season four, Maeve (Emma Mackey) leaves for Wallace University in the US, exposing her growing “thing” with Otis to several awkward sext-related situations.
Wallace is a fictional college in real life, so there’s no point in applying there. However, Bristol University, whose Gothic Wills Memorial Building acts as the Ivy League college’s library in the software, is where you may apply.
According to Du Preez, the choice to use the location was made since Maeve is traveling in a completely different direction, and it stands in stark contrast to Moordale.
Wallace’s exterior sequences were set against Westonbirt School in Gloucestershire’s stunning 19th-century surroundings. Du Preez claims, “We needed a structure that feels like an Ivy League college.” It was necessary, and Westonbirt is spectacular.
The semi-reformed bad boy Adam, who was deceived when his ex, Eric, was at Cavendish, is traveling to the Welsh wilderness in the new season to lick his wounds.
Those scenes were taken at Werngochlyn Farm, a working farm that invites visitors, which is nearby Abergavenny. Deon Du Preez, the site supervisor, explains the scene’s backdrop in these words: “To see the farm, the house, the stables, and the country landscape unfolding behind, that tells the whole story in one shot.”
Early seasons included a lot of mid-century and 1970s design influences, but Season 4 has a more modern vibe with a lot of ’80s references. Another crucial scene takes place in a mall that Tom reveals was destroyed soon after Sex Education was shot there.
