A TEENAGER has told of her anger and disappointment after her school sent her someone else’s A-level results.
Poole High School student Chantelle Beresford from West Howe felt all the anticipation and anxiety you’d expect as she held what she thought was her results letter in her hand last Friday.
But moments later the 17-year-old’s nerves turned to shock and disappointment when instead of finding that she had received her GCSE results early, she was in fact reading another student’s A-level results.
She told the Echo that the letter had been marked with her address and name, but inside were results for media studies and creative writing – courses she had not taken – on a letter marked with another student’s name.
“I wondered who else had had this done to them as well,” she said. “It wasn’t a nice feeling. I had my fingers crossed and everything, and ended up being angry and disappointed.”
Chantelle’s mum, Kerrie, added: “Has someone else got my daughter’s results was my initial thought as well. What about confidentiality?”
Sue Langdon, Senior Adviser for Children, Young People and Learning at Borough of Poole, said: “We cannot comment on this individual case as schools are responsible for distributing exam results to their students.
“We are working with the school to establish how this error occurred.”
Poole High School is currently closed and nobody from the school could be contacted for a comment.
