‘Sex Education‘ Netflix series is what high school movie lovers are dreaming of. For obvious reasons, the series exploded as soon as it was released last year, becoming a hotly-anticipated commercial and commercial success. It has tons of sex and tons, of all kinds, but mostly the worst kind. And then, there are all the moments of heartbreak that made us cry those happy tears. ‘Sex Education’ examines the growth and examines a person’s sexuality in a brilliant way. But it also expresses friendship, love, bullying, parenting in a sensitive and fun way.
‘Sex Education’ features amazing, inspiring, relevant, rhythmic music with songs ranging from the 80s and 90s by bands like The Cure and The Psychedelic Furs, and, of course, Ezra Furman’s memorable music. In appearance and beauty too, this series has a peppy American vibe-high vibe with a tone in the middle of the Atlantic from the 80s that quickly brings you back to John Hughes’ antiquities. But these are just a bunch of English high school kids with smartphones.
The ‘Sex Education Education’ program always raises confusion as it is difficult to put it in place and time. It is also where its beauty lies as it is both young and new.
Sex Education Netflix Series Filming Locations
The American vibe of the 80s ‘Sex Education’ is not a coincidence or a mistake. In fact, author Laurie Nunn has spoken about the fact that the series is a gift to John Hughes ‘old people like’ The Breakfast Club and ‘Pretty in Pink’. Producer Jamie Campbell also went on to say that the series aims to have a “passion” that is different from how English schools are often portrayed.
That’s why we have locks and banners and varsity jackets with jackets that play American football. But the series was actually set in South Wales and was shot at various locations around the area, near the Wye River and parts of Gloucestershire. Like the first season ‘Sex Education, the second season also includes these areas.
Forest of Dean and Wye Valley Location
Outside of this school, all the important areas of ‘Sex Education’ were filmed around Wye Valley and Forest of Dean on the Wales border. The air gun that launches the series follows the Wye River and takes it to the beautiful home of Otis and Jean.
The beautiful red and white house is The Chalet, located in the Symphs Yat in the Wye Valley, very close to the Gloucestershire border. The house is actually a B&B built in Scandinavian style overlooking the Wye River. All other scenes are filmed in place. The store where Maeve picks up valuable medical equipment is a family store called Brown Stores founded in 1928.
We are in Llandogo, south of Symonds Yat. The caravan park where Maeve lives is near Ross-on-Wye. The bridge where Otis and Eric ride their bicycles to school is the Wireworks Bridge in Tintern. While Bigsweir House in Gloucestershire is the venue used for a big party for the first season.
Apart from this, another area we see especially in the second season of ‘Sex Education’ is the military school where Adam was sent. Scenes containing the school are filmed at Margam Castle, Victoria’s largest country house in Port Talbot, built-in 1840 by Christopher Rice Mansel Talbot.
The University of Wales, Newport Location
I’m sure we all once watched the series, wondering where Mordaleale High really is. The production team actually took over the Caerleon campus in South Wales. It was one of the University of Wales buildings that closed in 2016 after a merger that formed the University of South Wales. The 32-hectare site where the campus once housed about 4,500 students has been vacant since 2016. a good high school hybrid.
But some school sites are not recorded in Caerleon. This includes a gym and a swimming pool. For the gym, when we have our school meetings and dances, the Paget Rooms in Penarth are repeated. This community hall, located south of Cardiff, usually houses theaters and was built in the early 20th century. Scenes set up in the swimming pool where we usually do Jackson, were shot at the Newport International Sports Village complex.
