It was established in Tooting Bec in 1926.[1]

The school closed when it was amalgamated with the adjacent Hillcroft School in 1971 to create Bec-Hillcroft comprehensive school.[2] Bec-Hillcroft was renamed Ernest Bevin School, after the former Labour minister Ernest Bevin, the next year.

The original Bec School buildings were demolished in 1996 and part of the original school site was used for housing. Ernest Bevin School was renamed Ernest Bevin College in 1997 and occupies part of the former Bec School site.[2]
