Yes When i send my application in in august will it go to the school first as im applying through school so that the refernce can be added?Yes Will the school even be open? It will be open for results, but most staff will not be there and will be too busy to write you a reference there and then. Get it done now, and save a lot of time and rushing. You can enter Extra now anyway.
    See bold above.

    Thanks I'll ask about my reference tomorrow - so will my reference just be saved somewhere so that the school can send it when UCAS request it?

    Yes. Most schools write them in advance of being needed so there is no delay in sending them off, but I can't say whether your school does that. If you ask now, it'll give your teachers time to do it instead of being expected to do it at a time when they are either on holiday or helping people who have already applied whose results have been insufficient to get them into the universities they applied to.
