    Hello, could some one post an reference letter from a teacher to a student? I've searched all over the Internet but all I managed to find was reference letters from employers.

    I think it would be difficult for someone to post their own teacher reference letter? A lot of colleges/sixth forms don't actually allow students to view their references - my own doesn't, though I've coaxed my tutor into letting me read mine. If you are on good terms with your tutor try to ask to see your own - it's bound to be a much better read than a reference for a stranger?
    May I ask why you're curious to read one? ^^

    I think these are good examples: http://www.aimhighernorthamptonshire...references.asp
    There's also a really good one with explanations as well as examples from Keele, I'm adding this as an attachment since the actual file isn't online anymore.

    Well, according to the University of Exeter website:

    "When writing a reference, [teachers should] remember that, under the Data Protection Act, any student can ask for a copy of the reference and any other personal information that we have about them."

    Your school shouldn't be disallowing you to see your own references...!
