The predecessor of the school was the China Ceramic Industry School (the school was located in Poyang, Jiangxi) founded in 1910 by Zhang Jian, Ruichen, Kangda, and others. In 1912, it was renamed Jiangxi Province Raozhou Ceramic Industry School, and in 1915 it was changed to Jiangxi Province. The second Class A industrial school was established, and a branch school was established in Jingdezhen the following year. In 1925, it was renamed Jiangxi Provincial Ceramics School, and girls' classes were started.
