IBTE Sultan Bolkiah Campus became operational in 1996 with the name Sekolah Vokasional Sultan Bolkiah (Sultan Bolkiah Vocational School) as an independent government technical college, overseen by the then Department of Technical Education under the Ministry of Education. In 2014, it was subsumed under, and made a campus of, IBTE, the umbrella institution which effectively replaced the department.[4] The campus acquired its present name two years later.[5] On 24 November 2015, students from the campus hosted a Basic Business Research Module (FBS) Clean Project at Lumut Beach, in which was part of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) assessment.[6]

On October 9, 2017, students from the Chung Ching Middle School visited the campus,[7] and later on the 26th a visit was hosted by the Air Engineering Unit, Technical Equipment Maintenance Division (TEMD) and the Royal Brunei Air Force (RBAF) to the Rimba Air Force Base.[8] From October 30 until 31, 2018, a Market Day was held within the campus.[9] A financial roadshow was hosted by TAKAFUL Brunei Keluarga Sdn Bhd (TBK) at the Sayyidina Ali Secondary School (SMSA), in which students from SCB and IBTE Jefri Bolkiah Campus attended.[10] The Department of Administration and Services at the Ministry of Education (MoE) visited the campus on 30 November 2019.[11]

Another beach cleaning campaign was carried out by the students of the campus at the Liang Lumut Recreational Club, Lumut on August 28, 2020.[12] A collaboration with Green Brunei and Mitsubishi Corporation was made on January 31, 2022, with a tree planting campaign which consisted of 22 donated saplings was carried throughout the campus.[13][14]
