Singleton Public School is one of the oldest in NSW, having been established on the Hunter Street site in 1856. The first permanent building was erected here in 1858. The oldest existing building on the site was built in 1876 (Kindergarten), with a further building (Year 6) opened in 1886. The previous administration block was constructed in 1910 following demolition of the 1858 building.
In the early 1950s, an additional site on the Pelerin Estate (King Street) was purchased. Buildings were opened on this site in 1964. Further buildings were opened at King Street in 1970.
By 1976, the enrolment at Singleton Public School had reached over 1000 pupils, housed on the two separate sites.
Because of the rapid growth of the town, it was decided to divide Singleton Public School into two separate primary schools. This occurred in 1979 with the establishment of King Street Public School at the King Street site, incorporating the South Singleton Infants and Singleton Public School at the original Hunter Street site.
In 1995 the school playground was expanded with the addition of the property at 10 Hunter Street.
In 2002 a further acquisition by the Department of Education and Training saw "The Parsonage" cottage at 8 Hunter Street added to the western side of the school property. This is now the school's administration building and the site of the school office.
