Clevedon School is celebrating its appearance in a prime time television drama.
Broadchurch returned to ITV on Monday night with its third series and the school, in Valley Road, was used as the setting for several scenes.
It is the third time the school, known as South Wessex Secondary School in the programme, has been used in the BAFTA-winning show with staff and students given the chance to make cameo appearances, and the school’s own coffee van, Hector, being used to serve refreshments to staff.
Jamie Williams, the school’s head of pastoral care, said: “It was a delight to work with the cast and crew of Broadchurch.
“They filmed over several months and really became part of the Clevedon School family.
“It gave the selected students a real insight into the world of television production – long hours, hard work and a lot of hanging around waiting for your moment of action.”
