According to the Education Department school correspondence file, classes began at Westbrook State School No. 1204 on 9 February 1910 - several days after its official opening due date because of a dispute between the contracted builder and the Department over payment. While a Government Gazettal notice has not been located for the establishment of the School, notification of its establishment under the name of Westbrook Crossing State School may be found in the March 1910 Education Office Gazette. A subsequent name change - to Westbrook State School, reportedly occured in April 1910 (appearing in the May 1910 Education Office Gazette).

The school closed in 1969.

Note: This school should not be confused with the school (no. 367) attached to the Westbrook Reformatory School for Boys.
