On 1 April 1878 the girls school became known as the Toowoomba Middle Girls State School and the Infants School was opened as Toowoomba Middle Infants (No. 399).
Toowoomba Middle Infants State School and Toowoomba Middle Girls State School were closed on 29 February 1880. The two schools were combined and opened on 1 March 1880 as Toowoomba Middle Girls and Infants State School (No 112).
In 1883 the Girls and Infants School was divided again and opened on 22 January 1883 as Toowoomba South Girls State School and Toowoomba South Infants State School (No. 399). On 1 October 1900, the Toowoomba South Girls' and Toowoomba South Infants' were amalgamated and became known as Toowoomba South Girls and Infants State School (No. 112).
