By 1876 the Rockhampton Central State Infants School had been allocated the number 252 and operated as a separate school. The school was combined with the Rockhampton Central State Girls School in 1963 to form the Rockhampton Central Girls and State Infants School, retaining the number of the girls' school 251.
