I've stripped my PS down to what I feel is the bare bones, I've only included really useful things that I've done, but I only have about 40 characters left to work with. I have no closing statement, my last paragraph just links in my interests in other subjects and it ends there. My head of sixth form recommended I add some sort of closing statement but there's really nothing I think I can remove. How important is it?

Well, you need to round your statement off with a crisp finishing point reminding them what a great asset you'll be to their university.
If not, your statement will sound unfinished because it'll be: Intro, para 1, para 2, para 3, para 4. Where's the end to wrap it all up?

It's more likely to hit the line limit than the character limit, so make sure you check that rather than wait til the last minute. You should have a conclusion, however. There is always something that you can remove or condense to fit it in, still fit it within the line count and leave line spaces between paragraphs (the only easy way to see the difference between them). Look at the guidance linked in my signature for advice on how to write a PS, which you can use to edit it
