The school was formerly a part of Eastern Goldfields Senior High School, but the school split in 2006 onto two separate campuses. The original site on Boomerang Crescent became Kalgoorlie-Boulder Community High School with classes for years 7-10. Senior students were moved to the local Curtin University campus and the students benefited from the high quality university facilities that were made available to them, particularly in the areas of trade and hospitality. The name of the school and its pegasus logo were made official in 2006.
Enrolments at the school were generally growing in the first three years, however it dipped significantly between 2011 and 2013.
