Brisbane Central State School opened as Leichhardt Street State School on 25 January 1875. It was divided into three schools, boys', girls' and infants'. Prior to 1954, the school was also known as Brisbane Normal School and Brisbane Central Practising School because in 1927 the pupils and teachers were transferred from the (now) Anzac Square site to Leichardt Street State School.

In September 1927, Leichhardt Street Boys', Leichhardt Street Girls' and Leichhardt Street Infants' schools amalgamated and became known as Leichhardt Street State School. (The combined school adopted the school number 207, the number of the previous boys' school.)

Leichhardt Street State School was renamed Brisbane Central State School by gazettal proclamation dated 1 January 1954.
