Petrie Terrace Girls' and Infants' School has its origins in the school opened in Petrie Terrace in 1868 for both boys and girls. On 25 January 1875, a new building for the girls was opened and the school officially became known as Petrie Terrace Girls' and Infants' School, school number 250.

Petrie Terrace State Girls' and Infants' School closed in 1953, when it was superseded by the Petrie Terrace Infants' School that was established on the site of the exisiting school. The older girls were transferred to the newly created Petrie Terrace State School.
