The State Education Act Amendment Act 1897 established Blackbutt State School , which opened on 20 January 1896 as a provisional school.

The first teacher appointed was Rosa Bella Ryan who was at the school from 1 January 1896 until 18 March 1897. The school became a state school in 1909. In 1912 a new larger school was built on a new site in a more central position and was opened in January 1914.

The school also maintains an Early Education Centre.
