Administrative history:
Swaylands School was a residential special school for educationally subnormal boys maintained by Middlesex County Council.
After the passing of the 1944 Education Act, the MCC expanded its provision for special education increasing its numbers of residential schools from one to ten, many accommodated in large mansions in the home counties. Swaylands was a 19th century Tudor style house situated at Penshurst, near Tonbridge, in Kent.
