To cut a long story short. I had to have a meeting with my old school I’m now 24 and they called me back to discuss a bad experience.

I attended a different college a year after I left the school, and when I went in the deputy head knew which college I attended. Which was strange because I didn’t even mention it.

Surely it would be a data protection breach for her to ask another college if I was a student there?

This is not unusual. If you transfer schools records/data/various information is transfered, the new school "requests it" from the old school. Schools also have to keep record of previous students for a period of time after they leave (never sure how long). In databases there is usually a "school history" section which will include where you move on to, this person probably just looked at that section.
