The International School for Primary Education (InSPE) is a non-profit organisation and was established in 1994 by a group of parents. Their aim was to provide quality education in English for children of the expatriate community in Bucharest. Initially set up as the International Nursery School, the success and growth of the school meant that new premises were soon needed. In 1995 the school moved to the ‘French Village’ where the school continued to flourish - reaching full capacity in 2004. A combination of the number of children on the waiting list, coupled with parental requests to provide continuing education up to the age of 11 years old, resulted in the need for relocation again. A suitable, purpose built school and surrounding area was found and, on 1st September 2009, the school changed its name to InSPE to reflect that it was now a combined Nursery and Primary School.
Since this time the school has seen steady growth in the number of pupils enrolled. At a result of this, in the summer of 2012 some classrooms and general areas were developed to maximise the available space. Part of this work resulted in a specialised computer suite and new classroom being created along with a new staffroom being built. At this time the redevelopment of the playground area took place with two all-purpose surfaces being laid and age-appropriate playground equipment being bought. In September 2013 the increased number of pupils attending the school resulted in the need for Primary 1 to have two classes. This was the first time in the history of the school that this had happened.
In January 2014 the school developed and grew even further as another building directly opposite the main school was taken on. As well as providing more classrooms and a second general purpose room, it also contains two administration offices and a medical room.
