Tooting Bec Asylum was the fourth asylum hospital to be erected by the Metropolitan Asylums Board to supplement the existing institutions at Leavesden, Caterham, and Darenth. It was intended to accommodate uncertifiable senile patients, infirm epileptics and other 'persons requiring exceptional individual attention'. In 1924 the hospital was renamed Tooting Bec Mental Hospital and became used exclusively for patients with senile dementia. It transferred to the control of the London County Council in 1930 and underwent further expansion, changing its name to Tooting Bec Hospital in 1937. The hospital closed in 1995. All the hospital buildings have now been demolished

Amalgamated with Hillcroft School in 1971 & ultimately re-named Ernest Bevin School. The Bec School buildings were demolished for housing in 1996 (ref: Wikipedia). I was still at the Bec in 1961.
